"Banned, butchered, debated, and denounced when it was released - it caused riots in Cannes, was forbidden in Ontario and severely censored in its home country - Nagisa Ôshima's ferocious tale of sexual obsession now takes its place as a classic of world cinema. Hard core sex, hard core politics, thrilling cinema." (James Quandt)
