As a young girl, Nagiko became her father's canvas each year on her birthday, as he'd paint on her face and neck the creation myth in elaborate, elegant calligraphy. As a young woman, she finds pleasure in continuing the practice with a succession of lovers, particularly a bisexual translator who becomes a pawn in an escalating game of revenge on the publisher who once exploited her beloved father's work.

One of my top 10 films. Erotic, smart, visually exciting, strong literary themes, great acting, completely engrossing and utterly surprising and original...a feast for the senses.
