Based on Oniroku Dan’s famous novel, FLOWER AND SNAKE is the first Nikkatsu erotic film to deal with the subject of sadomasochism. Makoto (Yasuhiko Ishizu) is a sexually suppressed man living with his mother Miyo (Hiroko Fuji) who owns an adult toy store. When he was a child, Makoto remembers shooting a soldier whom he found having sex with his mother. The elderly man who owns the company Makoto works for has an interest in BDSM and wants Makoto to kidnap and “train” his wife (Naomi Tani) to submit to him. With Makoto battling the demons of his past and unsure of the consequences of his own sexual awakening, what transpires is one of the most shocking, perverse and jaw-dropping Nikkatsu films ever made. Remastered by Nikkatsu Studios in high-definition, FLOWER AND SNAKE is one of Impulse Pictures’ most-requested titles to be released in our continuing Nikkatsu adult film collection.
