Koji Wada in Gate of Flesh

Gate of Flesh

1964 NR

A band of prostitutes scratches out a meager existence while fostering friendships and maintaining the barest semblance of order in a world on the brink of total chaos. But when a renegade ex-soldier (Jo Shishido) appears, lust and loyalty tragically collide. Social mores are under scrutiny -- and attack -- in director Seijun Suzuki's gripping drama that takes place amid the black markets and hovels of post-World War II Tokyo.
