In Violated Paradise, we follow Tamako, a half-Ainu girl from small traditional village roots in the northern backwaters of Hokkaido, on a seditious trawl around the fleshpots of Japan, leering at topless women pearl divers, bathhouse geishas, and glitzy nude cabaret performances in the Ginza district of Tokyo, “crossroads of the East, city of 39 races, 30 styles of cookery, and 56 ways of making love; of 82 basic odors and 80,000 stinks; of 12 kinds of dirt and 34 vices.”

MARION GERING, Violated Paradise’s Russian-born director, had made it all the way out of his homeland to become the toast of Tinseltown by the late Thirties via a brief spell working as a set designer on Broadway. Alas, his luck was not to last, but Hollywood’s loss was definitely the world’s gain when his final work saw him land in the Orient, making this Italian-funded mondo oddity based on photographer-anthropologist FOSCO MARAINI’s books Meeting with Japan and Hekura: The Diving Girls’ Island. The results go way beyond mere curio status. Stripped down to its bare fundoshi, it’s the Land of the Rising Sun as you’ve never seen it before! Butaniku
