WHITE LILY, by Hideo Nakata

Japan. 2016. 80 '. Fiction. VOSTF. Forbidden - 16 years

Tokiko is a famous ceramic artist, assisted by her lover Haruka, who obeys him blindly. This develops a deep jealousy when Tokiko agrees to chaperone a new student, Satoru.

Regarded as a master of horror film (Ring, Dark Water), Hideo Nakata changes the register with this film that belongs to the series of feature films initiated by Nikkatsu, in tribute to the "novel porn". In this sultry lesbian love story, the director explores masterfully the versatility of feelings, sexual tension, guilt, violence and sadomasochism. A surprising proposal and a rare audacity, which is reminiscent of the latest Korean film Park Chan-wook (Mademoiselle).
