Ecco l’impero dei sensi (L’empire des sens) (In the Realm of the Senses )

Direction: Oshima Nagisa

After finding that it was impossible for the Distribution Company to make the suggested cuts, the Review Committee expressed a negative opinion on the authorization for public screening; the decision is confirmed at appeal. The 2nd Edition, submitted with a number of changes, obtained the authorization, provided that children 18 and younger would be restricted from viewing, and that further scenes would be cut. The 3rd Edition, despite the changes, received the same judgment. The subtitles of the Original Edition are here enclosed.
