Violence at Noon

1966 NR

This drama from provocative Japanese auteur Nagisa Ôshima explores the disturbing relationship that homicidal rapist Eisuke Oyamada (Kei Satô) cultivates with two women: his former high school teacher Matsuko (Akiko Koyama) and lovely young maid Shino (Saeda Kawaguchi). Despite Eisuke's history of violence, one woman marries him and the other joins in shielding him from the law. Based on real events, this tale of perversity co-stars Rokko Toura.
