“Maybe you can't reply because of the paint thinners huh?”
- Yoko (Chieko Harada)
..:: The Trashy Trio Podcast - Featured Film #13 ::..
Standard Nikkatsu prison gubbins, with a huge emphasis on pee fetishism, pube pluckin and the noble art of dildo crafting. Three new inmates of a Yokohama female juvenile prison struggle to fit in. But Mayumi Hojo unlike the other new girls refuses to take the older criminals nonsense and fights back. Eventually Mayumi meets a like minded prisoner, and together they hatch a way to escape.
'Jitsuroku onna kanbetsusho: sei-jigoku' aka in the west 'True Story of a Woman in Jail: Sex Hell' is a typical lesbianism heavy pinku, that was only mildly stronger than an episode of 80s camp Australian TV classic 'Prisoner Cell Block H'. Director Kôyû Ohara failed to develop any of the characters, but its biggest problem was it tried so hard to be an authentic representation of girls behind bars, instead of a more glamorized approach like the far better 'Female Prisoner' films employed. Personally I found it terribly dull, but someone must have liked it, because they rushed a sequel out in the same year.
