Wet Woman in the Wild

Wet Woman in the Wild

Country: Japan

Status: Complete

Released: 2016

Genre: Drama

Plot: 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). Part of a five-film project reviving the 'Roman Porno' movies which helped sustain venerable production-house Nikkatsu through the 1970s and 1980s, it's an extreme long-shot in Locarno's Golden Leopard competition but should nevertheless enjoy further festival exposure in coming months
