Causing a sensation at Cannes in 1976, director Nagisa Oshima's In The Realm of the Senses depicted the true story of sexual obsession and its consequences in early 1930's Japan. Eiko Matsuda portrayed Abe Sada, a prostitute whose affair with a merchant (Tatsuya Fuji) progresses from a sexual fling to a compulsive and jealous obsession. Matsuda reportedly required institutionalization after completion of production. Intense and explicit, In The Realm of the Senses is still censored in Japan.
