Very boring. I was also dissapointed with the cinematography, which was very jumpy. I usually enjoy japanese cinema, but this was very disconnected from the players.

cuz it is about porn

First things first, I want to point out that the description is wrong. The girl is not misguided, she is demented and enters the porn industry to try to ruin her ex-boyfriend's life. So with that out of the way, I got this video because it is about the porn industry in Japan and the people who star in these films. Personally, I work in the entertainment industry (non-porn sector thank you very much) and I am always curious about movies that explore the seamier side of the industry.

With that out of the way I must say that this movie is extremely graphic, though not XXX fare, and the characters are really messed up individuals. For example, there is a scene where two of the main characters get married, on a porn set, where the bride walks up a staircase lined with guys and proceeds to give blow jobs to each guy and have them spew on her face, and then gets married, still covered in spew. Personally I was laughing at the whole scene because it is well done, and just so absurd. And then I was kinda disturbed after figuring out that the characters actually got married that way, making a porn video.

The thing that I liked most about this film is that it does not pass judgement on the characters. It does not criticize them for doing what they do, and it does not idolize their lives. They are shown for what they are, regular people with slight character flaws, who have very irregular jobs. They are just trying to find happiness in their lives, but like the rest of us, they have a hard time finding it.

All in all the film was interesting, and geez the sex scenes were really hot. It was like a porno with good acting, a really good story, not so good sex scenes (for a porno), and some pretty interesting shots. So if any of the above disturbs you, don't get this movie. But if you like interesting movies, with wacky characters, and hot sex then rent this. You might just like it.
