If you knew you were going to be killed in a year and had 30 million yen what would you do? Probably hire women for a million yen a month to live with you as your lovers.

Well that’s what Atsushi does. Pleasures of the Flesh is an exploration of what you can do with a lot of money, especially when the girl you love just got married.

Ôshima once again makes something that is both controversial and emotionally complex, leaving the audience in a state of moral ambiguity at all times.
