Underwater Love (Onna No Kappa) (2011)
Dubbed a "pink musical," Underwater Love brings together two genres-musicals and pinku eiga (pink films, a soft-core porn genre of Japanese cinema)-in a story of unrequited love with the mythical water creatures known as kappas. Thirtysomething Asuka has an easy life, a job in a fish factory, and a fiancé, Taki, who's also her boss. One day, as she walks by the lake near the factory, she sees her first kappa-a legendary Japanese creature with a human form but a beak face and a tortoiseshell back. She soon realizes that the kappa is her old friend from school, Aoki, who drowned when he was 17. As she hides Aoki from her fiancé and others, she must begin to decide what is most important for her. --(C) Tribeca … More

Critic Reviews for Underwater Love (Onna No Kappa)
elevated far above your average tits 'n' ass exploitationer. Imaoka's film is too shoddily thrown together, too patchy and uneven, to qualify as any kind of masterpiece - but it might just leave the more adventurous viewers out there tickled pink.
