Movie Reviews: Sada


A treatment of the Sada Abe story that's about as far removed as you’re going to get from the hypnotic power of In the Realm of the Senses. It covers more of the character's life than that film, and in a gaudy, mannered, Seijun Suzuki-esque fashion, veering between being enjoyably stylized and uncomfortably sentimental about its subject matter, and runs way too long at 132 minutes. Director Nobuhiko Obayashi is the fellow who gave us the completely insane House / Hausu.
