Onna kyūketsuki( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in Japanese and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman named Miwako (Mihara) who's been missing for twenty years suddenly turns up alive, and looking not a day older than when she vanished. When her confused daughter Itsuko (Ikeuchi) sees a painting at an exhibition of a woman identical to her unaged mother, her cub reporter boyfriend Tamio (Wada) helps her track down the owner - an odd man named Nobutaka (Amachi). Actually a vampire named Shiro Sofue, he sees Miwako as his eternal, long lost lover. Soon after, he kidnaps and whisks her away to Shimabara in western Japan. The climax leads Itsuko, Tamio, and the cops to the vampire's mountain-entombed castle, which is quite a set to behold, complete with all mod cons (even an acid bath). The vampire's motley crew of henchmen includes a bald brute with a musket rifle, a white-haired witch, and a scurrying dwarf. Nakagawa regular Amachi is amusing as the dandyish dracula, so different from his heavily burdened character in the later Jigoku. In a funny variation on the usual problem with sunlight, this vampire can be killed off by moonlight. During the final battle, the castle caves in, in one of several references to the "Amakusa Shiro" Christian uprising cited in the original novel (the others being the Shimabara location and of course the name "Shiro").--www.midnighteye.com

Yuki Fujin ezu by Gou kou jian er( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though decorous by today's standards, Madame Yuki was considered extremely erotic for its portrayal of a woman in love with the sex act itself. Yuki, the only daughter of a once-noble family, is married to businessman whom she despises, though his sexual prowess attracts her hopelessly. Madame Yuki is one of Mizogchi's most elliptical films: the narrative unfolds in small bits and pieces, often as seen through Yuki's servants. The film is characterized by partial, indirect visibility, a quality emphasized by its many camera shots through curtains, gauze drapery, or leafy branches"--Container
