Ai no bôrei / Empire of Passion (1978)
Best Foreign Language Film 'of the 51st Academy Awards in 1979.
A young man has an affair with an older woman. He is very jealous of her husband and
decides that they should kill him. One night, after the husband had plenty of sake to
drink and was in bed, they strangle him and dump his body down a well. To avert any
suspicions, she pretends her husband has gone off to Tokyo to work. For three years
the wife and her lover secretly see each other. Finally, suspicions become very strong
and people begin to gossip. To make matters worse, her husband's ghost begins to haunt
her and the law arrives to investigate her husband's disappearance.
How many love stories we can been see befor? A great many, but perhaps no one
couldn't show love, like do it Nagisa Oshima. At the Cannes Film Festival, lot of candals
and attempts to ban film "Bullfighting of Love" only increased interest to movie, it had
to be shown 13 times (an unprecedented case in the history of the "World Cup" in
cinema ), however, already out of competition.
This is a wonderful, high-quality erotic film with great acting and a complex idea, rare
picture in which the most frank part of a person's intimate life has turned into an object
of high creativity and becomes a test for hypocrisy
