Locarno soft core porn movie 'Wet Woman In The Wind' stirs buyers

EXCLUSIVE: Akihiko Shiota’s latest has gone to South Korea and Taiwan.

Nikkatsu Corporation has sold Akihiko Shiota’s latest film Wet Woman In The Wind, which is set to receive its world premiere in Locarno’s International Competition today Friday (August 5), to South Korea (Orange Yellow Heim) and Taiwan (Movie Cloud).

This is the first Roman Porno film from Nikkatsu in the festival’s main competition since the Japanese company started the softcore porn label in 1971. It also marks the return of Japanese director Shiota to Locarno after his first feature Moonlight Whispers (not a Nikkatsu Roman Porno) was competing for the Golden Leopard in 1999.

The new picture is about a former playwright from the city who seeks to lead a quiet life in the mountain but is caught up in a spiral of desire with a promiscuous young woman. The main cast includes Yuki Mamiya and Tasuku Nagaoka.

Wet Woman In The Wind is the first of the five films to premiere from the Roman Porno Reboot Project launched by Nikkatsu for the 45th anniversary of its Roman Porno films. The other four Japanese directors for the series are Kazuya Shiraishi, Sion Sono, Hideo Nakata and Isao Yukisada.

The domestic release for Wet Woman In The Wind is tentatively scheduled for the last quarter of this year.
