Now a well-respected doctor in Japan, she practices medicine by day and prowls the city streets at night in search of lovers. Possessing a raging desire for revenge against man, she destroys them with the one weapon they cannot resist…sex! Finally marrying and settling down, Saeko’s life changes for the better. But, her new husband (Akihiko Kaminara) may have a dark secret of his own…
MADAME O is a classic and controversial tale of revenge from late 1960s Japan. Director Seiichi Fukuda uses widescreen cinematography and a strange mix of both black and white and color imagery to paralyze audiences with gore, nudity and shocking violence.
