Kyoujin Kankei

Furious Love is a story of amour fou in the old Edo, a wild and lunatic story about love, lust and passions. The main roles: the world-famous artist Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei and his epigone Sutehachi - who not only wants to artistic outstrip the great master of the woodcut, but also only too willingly fall pray to the amorous temptations of life...

Kamimura Kazuo designs in this fictional story not only a merrily unchaste genre picture of a artistic milieu of the past - at the same time he also manages the feat, to include again and again details and elements of ancient woodcuts in his elegant drawings, without that the dramatic narrative loses momentum.
