Yuriko is 30 years old, works in a salon and aromatherapy has a special sensitivity to odors. Remains attracted to a seventeen year old high school student from the smell of sweat that he has just come out from training kendo. Yuriko has difficulties in having normal sexual relations but is kidnapped by the warm smell of animal button that gives off the boy’s body.
The smells of bodies as by the most basic can come to think, to get in touch with the world and with others. It smells like rediscovery of physicality in an increasingly immaterial world and anesthetized. With considerable wisdom narrative, Yoshida surrounds this basic idea with various touches, delicate as meaningful, sensuality and attraction: fetishism, lesbianism, voyeurism. The result, however, is not so much an erotic film as a human account, real, acceptable and fun, extent of the less conventional territories of desire and love. Very appropriate the plaintiff’s choice, the remarkable Noriko Eguchi, already seen among other things in “Tsuki to Cherry” by Yuki Tanada in a role somewhat similar. The astonished tremor with which she lives her sexual inclinations is irresistible.
