Lethal Babe Ochô Is Back, With More Awesome Sleaze

The ravishing Reiko Ike is back, sexy and deadly as ever in this awesomely sleazy sequel to Norifumi Suzuki's "Sex And Fury" (1973). Brought to you by cult-director Teruo Ishii ("Black Cat's Revenge", "The Executioner", "Orgies Of Edo", "Horrors of Malformed Men",...), "Yasagure anego den: sôkatsu rinchi" aka. "Female Yakuza Tale: Inquisition and Torture" of 1973 is yet another great entry to the Japanese 'Pinky Violence' Exploitation sub-genre. The film's great visual style, tons of sleaze and violence, and, above all, genre-goddess Reiko Ike make this a must-see for my fellow Pinky Violence enthusiasts and highly recommended to any fan of cult-cinema.

The sexy and lethal gambling-lady, thief and swords-woman Ochô Inoshika (Reiko Ike) is back, and immediately confronted with lots of new enemies. Among others, she has to struggle with a ring of drug smugglers who smuggle heroin in a very kinky manner... I don't won't give away any more of the story, as I don't wanna spoil any of the fun, but I can assure that my fellow Japanese Exploitation lovers should be more than satisfied. While "Female Yakuza Tale" may not be quite as good story-wise as the foregoing "Sex And Fury", it even surpasses its predecessor in sleaziness. The film is again beautifully shot, with immensely stylish fighting sequences. What makes these (often slow-motion) sword-fights even more memorable is the fact that the ravishing heroine Ochô tends to fight bare-breasted or even completely naked. Also, the ONLY thing that I did not love about "Sex And Fury" namely the romance (Christina Lindberg's voice made me understand why her character in "Thriller, En Grym Film" was mute) is omitted here for good, and even though I might stand alone with this opinion, I liked the fact that Lindberg was not part of this one. There's again a lot of bloodshed, and the sleaze-factor is enormous. I won't go into detail, but Pinky Violence fans will know what to expect, and I assure that their expectations are not going to be disappointed. A great sequel to the brilliant "Sex And Fury", "Female Yakuza Tale" is pure cult-cinema that satisfies in all regards and a must see for every fan of Japanese Exploitation cinema! Highly Recommended!
