(rape-prone Natsuko Yashiro) takes a driving trip to Tokyo from her hometown.
Enroute, she meets many men and gets raped by them all. When she reports
the assaults to the cops, she is even raped by them. This illogical plot
is essentially an excuse for a smorgasbord of graphic rape vignettes,
to the point of the absurd. Director Hasebe calls it "a comedy ...
a satire of Nikkatsu's brainless rape films" [from an exclusive interview
magazine, issue #25]. He further said: These Pinku
Eiga are just movies. When violent pink became a popular genre, I
noticed that the audience was simply looking for something new, something
exciting. Take RAPING! as an example... the idea
of a pink road movie was unique. We played around with Yashiro's
character; she was like a piece on the chessboard that is raped with every
move. This has nothing to do with the image of women in society. Our culture
is more open to this form of representation. It's not even a question
of right or wrong.
Yashiro was one of Yasuharu Hasebe's favorite cinematic rape victims.
She had already played the leading role in his RAPE!,
she was the first victim ASSAULT!
JACK THE RIPPER and in RAPE:
13TH HOUR she was raped early on by the villain Crimson. Here
she plays Mayuko, an innocent young woman from the country, slipping from
one rape to the next. It starts when a truck driver [to whom she loans
a tire-jack] "thanks" her with a brutal rape. As the film progresses,
Mayuko is raped by a brothel customer, a mechanic, a doctor and two policemen.
