"Gate of Flesh" is a portrait of postwar Japanese society, trying to survive among the still smoldering ashes of the devastated buildings. A group of prostitutes in the ruined lives inside one of them. The film focuses primarily on the special relationship between them and their self-imposed but inviolable code of rules.

"1946, Occupation/Post-War Era. In the immediate aftermath of World War 2, a band of prostitutes eek out a meager existence in the burnt out ghettos of war ravaged Tokyo. The bombed out wasteland and wild lawlessness of the city evokes a strong sense of the collapse of civilized society and a reversion to primitive barbarity in the immediate aftermath of the war. "

“"Gate of Flesh" is a portrait of postwar Japanese society, trying to survive among the still smoldering ashes of the devastated buildings. A group of prostitutes in the ruined lives inside one of them. The film focuses primarily on the special relationship between them and their self-imposed but inviolable code of rules.

Its director, Seijun Suzuki, boasts stunning aesthetics, staggering at times. Never mind that the sets of a ruined Tokyo are displayed in a motley mix of bright colors that exude cardboard, because what seems to be pursued is a forced sense of unreality. The fabulous presentation of the four major players in monochrome frames unreal, deserves special attention as it is a model of avant-garde comics.
