Flower and Snake: Shiiku hen/Comments

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< Flower and Snake: Shiiku hen
  • First, the big surprise; Shiiku hen features approximately two minutes of full blooded character developement. It may not be much, but I assure you, it’s a rare treat in a Nikkatsu sm flick. Otherwise Shiiku hen (the second of the 80's Flower and Snake film), which doesn’t seem to have an english language title due to the fact that writer / bootlegger and overseas information bank Thomas Weisser failed to notice its existense, is a standard effort. The lack of new ideas is obvious, and the boring warehouse setting doesn’t help either. There’s only one memorable scene, plus a soundtrack that has a tiny bit of attempt. Neither are major merits. --HungFist
