FULLY UNCUT 127 Minute Version!
Japanese Title: AKA X PINKU [Secretly A Pink Film]
starring: Yuria Haga · Sanae Hitomi · Rina Koike · Ayame Misaki
To escape the tiresome
routine of a daily life in Tokyo, young females join an illegal fight
club called Girl's Blood. Here, under the cover of night, they
adopt new personas and become MMA-style Divas for cheering crowds. The
plot revolves around four members but the attention is clearly on Satsuki,
queen of the brutal underground. Satsuki is a lesbian; however she has
trouble expressing her feminine side. When a new girl named Chinatsu shows
up, the tensions flare but after a match they find comfort between the
bed sheets. Trouble brews when Chinatsu's jealous husband [also a martial
arts fighter] threatens to bring down the club but then agrees to settle
things with a match between the girls and his clan.
This is truly an amazing
hybrid. But the most surprising thing about this film is how it successfully
mixes brutal fight sequences with scenes of lesbian love. Director Koichi
Salamoto manages to drift hypnotically from one genre to the other without
compromising his story. He is a master at this type of juxtaposition,
having also meshed sex and violence seamlessly in his previous 009-1:
THE END OF THE BEGINNING.
Perhaps this is even more surprising because Mr Sakamoto is usually working
as the director for Ultraman, Kamen Rider or
Power Rangers. He has helmed hundreds of TV episodes since 1996.
Incidentally, the four female actresses here all came from starring roles
in his television productions.
