Plot / Synopsis
An updated adaptation of Tanizaki’s 1924 novel Naomi about a middle-aged factory engineer who trains, marries, and ultimately loses a teenage bride after she turns him into a slave to her whims. The intensity of his desire makes him a prototypical Masumura lunatic, and the creepy, quasi-abstract industrial landscapes evoke those of Antonioni – though similar shots are found in Masumura’s 1959 Overflow, so any direct influence from Red Desert seems unlikely.
