Ever since I stumbled over this movie on amazon I have this itch to buy it, but 20+ bucks is more than I`m usually willing to pay for a DVD. Sounds bizarre enough to be right up my alley, though.

So, has anybody seen it ? How is it ?

and how much porn is a "pink film", anyway ? :Oops:

From the review I just read in Giant Robot, I would suggest renting it.

It's mildly entertaining and if you can find it for half the price, I'd say get it. There are many crazy ideas, but it feels tedious at times and it never raises above the look and lackluster pacing of your average tv movie. The ending has a bit of a Nouvelle Vague feel to it, but the movie would have benefited from a better cinematographer.

Bizarre and Japanese pink, why not try one of Yasuzo Masumura movies from the 1960s?
