This review is from: A Snake Of June [DVD]  (DVD)
Snake of June is unique that set in black and white and with some unusual photography, where a woman Rinko(Asuka Kurosawa) discovers her inner desires through her blackmailer.
The husband Shigehiko(Yuji Koutari) discovers his wife Rinko(Asuka Kurosawa) maybe leading a double life, so Shigehiko becomes a suspicious man that wants to observe her. It’s a classic set-up of film noir, but strange with many mysterious settings.
Rinko initially a repressed, woman with no hope, becomes slowly sexually reawakened after Iguchi forcibly encourages her to live out her secret fantasies. Iguchi her ‘knight’ helps her to have a satisfying sex life. The therapy starts to work, it becomes electric and soon things start to change for Rinko and Shigehiko. The mood changes and Shigehiko does not know what to do and becomes feable, Iguchi realises that he has the opportunity to take control of Rinko and uses her like 'meat'.
Snake of June is a erotic thriller about control as well as self-control. While it may thrill certain audiences, the inner sanctum shows a hidden message of passion, desire and voyeurism not seen in many modern films. However, the realism of the film can be defined as extreme and maybe disturbing to those that have never seen such scenes.
For those with an appetite that want to understand 'voyeurism' it is a essential to see this film.
