Gushing Prayer: A Fifteen Year Old Prostitute (1971)

Adachi Masao directs Michio Akiyama, Yûji Aoki and Masaaki Hiraoka in this Japanese pink film where a school girl, who is pregnant and suicidal, tries to replicate the obscure feeling she felt having sex with her teacher, through orgies and prostitution.

Some atmospheric shots of Japanese counter culture get overwhelmed by the nasty unrelenting grimness of the exploitation. Even if you came for nudity and unsexy sex simulations you’ll be sick of them by the end. Adachi is definitely trying to say something about art, youth, nihilism and female sexuality… he doesn’t find his sentiments, gratingly so.
