Vengeance is Mine
The good news is that there is a lot of Yukari
Oshima in this film. We get to see her laugh and giggle and cry and love
and of course get very pissed off. The bad news is that this is a very
cheap production - not even Filipino low budget standards - this
looks like TV quality and the film appears to be shot on videotape.
Yukari gets married and goes to HK to honeymoon
where her husband is murdered and she is raped. She seeks revenge, but
it takes a long time.
Five years later she finally recognizes the five
assailants on TV who by now have become very successful and she goes to
work. Lots of action once this happens - though this is a good hour into
the film - but it is very poorly done. There is one great shot of Yukari's
rage as she forks one of the bad guys (classic kung-fu bad guy - Pai Ying).
Yukari has never looked lovelier - but this
film is only for Oshima fanatics (of which I count myself !).
