Crimson Dream


Tetsuji Takechi's third film is based on two short stories by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki. The film depicts the lurid and violently erotic dreams of a writer, his wife and his sister, after having spent a night out drinking and visiting sex shows. It underwent extensive censorship before the government would allow it to be released. About 20% of the film's original content was cut and this footage is now considered lost.
