Biography
Born in 1937, he established his own production company, Mukai Production (later renamed Shishi Production), in 1965. Since his feature debut Flesh, he has directed more than 100 sexploitation films – so-called pink movies – and became one of the most important directors of the heyday of pink movies in the 60s and 70s. As a producer, he raised several generations of young directors, among them Takita Yojiro, Sato Hisayasu, Zeze Takahisa and Imaoka Shinji. Since the late 1990s, beginning with Going West, he directed a number of independent films about elderly people. He died in June 2008.

Blue Film Woman / Kan Mukai

Mariko’s father, Kenzo, has been very successful as a private investor, but one day the stocks he had expected to rise suddenly slump and he ends up with huge debts. In return for a payment extension, the loan shark Uchiyama demands Kenzo’s wife. He also forces her to sexually comfort his mentally challenged son. On her way back, after having been abused by Uchiyama’s son, she is hit by a car and killed. Shocked by the death of his wife, Kenzo kills himself. Mariko vows to take revenge on Uchiyama...
