This doesn't have much to do with Terayama or Tenjo Sajiki, but it's still a timeless and little known masterpiece from the Japanese New Wave / ATG that everyone has to watch!!! Akio Jissōji was a spectacular director, who could combine traditional Buddhist art and ethics with electrifying eroticism and intense modern sensibilities in his auteur films (while being successfully engaged at the same time in a number of TV / commercial cinema projects)...
