This movie sounds very interesting. From Mainichi:

Actress Kyoko Hasegawa charmed fans with a pre-screening appearance of her new movie, “Female,” a compilation of five short films focusing on the eroticism of women of different ages.

“Female” is drawn from five different novels written by five different women writers, with each short being directed by a different auteur.


Director Suzuki Matsuo recommended “Female” for “[Saki] Takaoka’s bold sex scene,” drawing a blush from the 32-year-old actress.

“How embarrassing. I want to get away from here,” she said.

She went on, however. “A woman’s body, just being a woman in itself, is erotic,” Takaoka said.

I’m very interested to see eroticism explored by Japanese women. I hope female will be subtitled!
