Whatever your tastes, there’s a very good chance that Shinji Imaoka’s Underwater Love is unlike anything you’ve seen before. A self-described “pink musical” – meaning it features sequences of soft-core porn to go with its songs – it’s a silly, tasteless, bewitching, and joyously nonsensical foray into romance, myth and taboo-busting. The director has made his career in Japanese soft porn so the high level of sexual content is expected. However this time around Imaoka has teamed up with acclaimed cinematographer Christopher Doyle and turned in a fantasy sex musical revolving around the legendary water creature, the kappa.
Sound On Sight was proudly quoted on the first teaser trailer after its premiere at Tribeca. Now the full Japanese theatrical trailer has arrived. No we are not quoted in this spot but the international trailer includes more music from German pop act Stereo Total. Enjoy!
