In the most lavish penthouses, visible only through keyholes, there exists a dangerous and erotic world. High-paid prostitutes who specialize in high-stakes games make the rounds. The richer the client, the wilder the ride. When fantasy gets too rough for one young call-girl, escaping becomes her reality. Newly restored and uncut, directed by novelist Ryu Murakami.
An official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. "Ryu Murakami’s luminous “Tokyo Decadence”, a film of power and astonishment, as serious as it is kinky, probes the daily existence of Ai (Miho Nikaido), a demure, 22-year-old call girl, to discover what her life reveals about contemporary Japan." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
DIRECTED BY RYU MURAKAMI
