Plot: Hakujitsumu (Day-Dream) is a 1964 Japanese Pink film. The first to have a big budget and a mainstream release in Japan, it was shown at the Venice Film Festival and given two releases in the United States. Director Tetsuji Takechi remade the film in hardcore versions in 1981 and 1987. Both of these remakes starred actress Kyoko Aizome.
The story is loosely based on a 1926 short story. The film opens as an artist and a young woman are in a dentist’s waiting room. Though he is attracted to the woman, he says nothing to her. They are later in the same examining room. When the artist is given an anaesthetic, he begins to imagine a series of scenes in which the woman undergoes various forms of sexual abuse at the hand of the dentist, including bondage, rape and torture.
Today Daydream retains a high reputation among Pink films. The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide calls Daydream an “extraodinary little film” which, by stimulating the Pink film genre, “changed Japanese films forever.”
