Not to be confused with the comedy-action movie starring Bruce Willis, Red, known as Shape of Red in English, came out earlier this year in Japan.
The R15-rated film stars Satoshi Tsumabuki and Kaho. Based on a novel by the award-winning writer Rio Shimamoto, Shape of Red is an erotic story with several appropriately sensual scenes involving the leads. We particularly like the toe-licking scene.
For a film about adultery and whose female director said is showing what women really want, the depiction of the affair is suitably focused on Kaho and not filtered through the male gaze that films with erotic themes typically labor under.
Sorry for the small and poor-quality nature of the images. We hope to get better screen grabs at a later date and do an update here or in a fresh post.
In the meantime, here is the film trailer.
