7 / 10 (758)


Izumi is married to a famous romantic novelist but their life seems just a simple repetition without romance. One day, she decides to follow her desires and accepts to be a naked model that fakes sex in front of the camera. Soon she meets a mentor and starts selling her body to strangers.

MUBI's take

The third entry in Sion Sono’s Hate Trilogy, this boundary-pushing drama is a neon-lit journey into the seedy underbelly of Tokyo’s love hotel district. Imbued with the director’s typical cynicism, as well as a dose of grim humor, Guilty of Romance is a provocative account of sexual liberation.
