Editorial Reviews

During World War II, the tyrannical Judge Murayama uses his military power to imprison and torture innocent people. Suspected of helping an anti-government movement, the lovely Namiji Kikushima (Naomi Tani) is captured, along with a local kabuki actor. Helpless and unable to escape, the two are subjected to a grueling series of tortures including rope bondage and physical assault. As the Judge and his evil assistant Kayo revel in their perverse fetishes, a new military recruit they ve hired named Taoka may be the key to prisoners freedom. He loves Namiji and will do what he can to help her, even if it means betrayal to organize an escape! Impulse Pictures is proud to present FAIRY IN A CAGE, one of the most controversial films of 1970's Japanese cinema, in a brand-new high-definition transfer taken from the original 35mm camera negative.
Bonus Features Include: Chapter Selections, Liner Notes

4.0 out of 5 stars NIKKATSU CRUELTY April 5, 2013
By Ramm
Format:DVD
"Fairy In A Cage" (1977) has just been given its' world DVD premiere by the Impulse/Synapse distributors as a continuation of their series of re-releases of the infamous Japanese 'Nikkatsu Studio's' line of 'Roman Porno' films. Based on a story/screenplay by the prolific Japanese fetish author: Oniroku Dan - "Fairy In A Cage" presents a pretty intense foray into S&M territory via a plot that focuses on the abuses of power and depravity purportedly perpetrated by the Japanese military during WW II against its' own citizens. The principal players in the movie include the Military Police and a corrupt/depraved senior official who jointly take a little too much personal pleasure in the 'interrogations' that they contrive. in the name of national security. to supply their torture chamber with victims, and the victims (both male & female) who fall into their clutches.

The action in this film is pretty harsh and may not be to everyone's taste - as it packs a lot of torture and bondage, brutality, & nudity into its' modest 71 min playtime. There is very little sex actually portrayed - the sexploitational elements in this one are decidedly S&M oriented. "Fairy In A Cage" is in many ways typical of other similar shocking 70's fare (such as the "Illsa" series). This genre of movies seemed to visualize the lurid stories that populated the 'Mens Magazines' of the post WW II era - that recounted tales of war atrocities (generally involving attractive women). white slavery, outlaw biker gangs, and the like. The difference between much of the sorta 'campy' USA and Euro sleaze product and the corresponding Japanese version is the grim nihilistic seriousness with which some of the Nipponese films unwind... including this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Smart Talk On Skin: Oh Soldier, My Soldier! July 16, 2014
Format:DVD
To be honest, I haven’t watched all that much S&M. I’ve seen a good handful of features exploring what I’ve called ‘the darkest of the carnal fruits,’ but I’m clearly no expert on the subject matter. However, Nikkatsu’s FAIRY IN A CAGE was a bit above what I’ve seen elsewhere. Some of that could be the setting. Some of it could be the direction. More of it is mostly likely due to the excellent production detail paid in the war-time backdrop which serves as the mechanism to bring all of these players together.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

From the product packaging: “During World War II, the tyrannical Judge Murayama uses his military power to imprison and torture innocent people. Suspected of helping an anti-government movement, the lovely Namiji Kikushima is captured, along with a local kabuki actor. Helpless and unable to escape, the two are subjected to a grueling series of tortures including rope bondage and physical assault. As the Judge and his evil assistant Kayo revel in their perverse fetishes, a new military recruit they’ve hired named Taoka may be the key to the prisoners’ freedom. He loves Namiji and will do what he can to help her, even if it means betrayal to organize an escape!”

FAIRY IN A CAGE created a bit of a stir when it was first released in the late 70’s, much of which was honestly due to public scrutiny its studio – Nikkatsu – was enduring at the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money June 12, 2013
By Johann
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the biggest piece of junk I have ever wasted money on. The plot is VERY thin. Basically a perverted professor lusts for a married woman and gets the army military police to arrest her so that he can have his way with her. There is some S&M which consists of some breast scenes a lot of dialogue and nothing else. The heroine protests a lot about being arrested and that takes up about 70% of the movie. The rest is some bondage scenes where a lot of rope is shown and not much else.

In the end, even though the heroine is arrested only to molest her she is killed in the most stupid way possible. So there is not even a happy ending to justify the stupidity of the plot.

Save your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Dated Fairy June 15, 2013

Bought this out of curiosity and for its historical value, but in reality, the value is very minimal. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay Movie April 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know that the movie was not dubbed in English. The reviews didn't state this. This is the only problem I had with the movie otherwise it was an okay movie with plenty of nudity and sexual encounters.
