    In several weeks ago, the movie club in our school (NSYSU) wanted
to show a film. I do not know what is it name in English, because it
is a Japan film.  But school stop it , because they say it is about
salacity.
    This film is adapted from a social case that made a greatsensation
all over Japan in 1936 . A woman cut away her lover`s sexual organs and
carry it walking in Tokey . She was seized by the policeman after four
days .
    This film was completed in 1975 and it investor is French, but it
director is Japanese. When this film showed in Europe first , it gave
rise to much controversy and discussion.
    Does this film express art or salacity ? I feel it is art. But why
school say it is salacity. Hope someone has seen this film can tell me
your opinion. I have another question. What university in Taiwan has
showed this film in public ?  Thank you.
