One of Japan’s most salacious cinematic exports returns after nearly 30 years with Wet Woman in the Wind. Join us for a special preview event before the film releases for 1 week only.
A non-stop energetic sex comedy, Wet Woman in the Wind is part of Nikkatsu’s Roman Porno Reboot project, paying homage to the softcore porn films of the 1970s and 80s.
To mark the 45th anniversary of the infamous Roman Porno, Nikkatsu commissioned some of Japan’s leading filmmakers to make a new set of films using similar constraints. The films had to be under 80 minutes long, have at least 1 sex scene every 10 minutes and be shot in under a week. Director Akihiko Shiota uses these constraints to his advantage in this vigorously-paced film.
Playwright Kosuke has forsaken the city and sex to live in a remote mountain lodge. He encounters a beautiful woman who decides there and then to seduce the reluctant Kosuke, setting off a very funny battle of the libidos. Working with, and playfully subverting the genre, Shiota has created a laugh-out-loud homage.
“A long-dormant sub-genre of cinema returns to sparky life in Akihiko Shiota’s increasingly raunchy but disarmingly breezy Wet Woman in the Wind (Kaze ni nureta onna)” – The Hollywood Reporter.
“Love brings the house down – quite literally – in Wet Woman in the Wind, a Japanese softcore sex comedy that must surely be one of the jolliest and most pugnacious erotic films ever made… Shunsuke Kida’s playfully jazzy score gives this eccentric piece additional hipster appeal” – Screen Daily.
