Dans ce contexte, la jeune femme, prête à tout pour réussir, va vendre son corps et entrer dans le milieu de la prostitution....Shôhei Imamura révolutionne le cinéma japonais avec ce chef-d'oeuvre sulfureux dressant le portrait sans concession d'une femme de son temps. Le cinéaste qui scrute le personnage à la loupe, signe une fresque intimiste sur l'histoire et l'évolution de son pays." (Source : jaquette)
