Of Snakes and Ropes

As Japan got a lot of attention in the past weeks, I have been naturally led to recheck the list of movies inspired by a famous novelist.

緊縛 卍責め

I noticed a red wàn on the movie poster of Double Rope Torture (1985), staring Miki Takakura. In japanese the movie is known as Oniroku Dan Kinbaku Manji-zeme (緊縛 卍責め). Manji, “Man Character” being the japanese name for the chinese wàn character.
