One of Oshima's most powerful and controversial films. Telling the brutal story of real-life rapist and serial murderer Eisuke, and his relationship with his protective schoolteacher wife Matsuko. and his only surviving victim Shino. Oshima takes the format of the 'real-life crime' drama and uses it as a canvas to lay bare the lost idealism and decay in postwar Japan. Although the action takes place in a seemingly idyllic rural setting, Oshima's portrait of humanity is as dark, violent and uncompromising as the urban wastes and hellish ghettos of Naked Youth and The Sun's Burial. Never presenting Eisuke as anything less than a monster, Oshima goes further to suggest how such deviancy and (specifically male) violence reflects an amoral and corrupt modern society.
Part thriller, part bold reaction against the austere Japanese cinematic tradition with avant-garde experimentation and grim social commentary, Violence at Noon is fresh and as fearsome today as when it was first released - and is available for the first time in the UK.
