A tornado of unbridled sexual desire is unleashed when a free spirited seductress sets her sights on a reclusive playwright. Wet Woman in the Wind highlights the Id in its stream of consciousness tale. Having a character who overturns the inhibitions of all that cross her path with wild abandon allows this striking entry in Nikkatsu’s Roman Porno Redux series to transcend its sexploitation raison d’être. Director Shiota cuts to the chase, taking advantage of the subgenre’s sparse requirements: a sex scene every ten minutes with a total running time no longer than 80 minutes. What ensues is a gleefully anarchic plot that explores the human psyche through sexuality within a psychodrama that is as hilarious as it is titillating. Featuring a tour de force performance by Mamiya Yuki as the eponymous agent provocateur, Wet Woman in the Wind may prove to be the visceral climax of the series.
