Abnormal Family: Older Brother's Bride (変態家族兄貴の嫁さん, Hentai kazoku: Aniki no yomesan) is a 1984 Japanese Pink film written and directed by Masayuki Suo and released by Shintōhō Eiga. [1] [2]

Synopsis

Complications are brought to a middle-class family when older brother Kōichi brings home his new sexually voracious bride Yuriko. Younger brother Kazuo looks to the new arrival as a source of sexual release while sister Akiko surreptitiously works in a soapland and Father lusts after a bar proprietess.

Cast

Background

Although he had written screenplays for other pink films and was an assistant director (and a bit player) in Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Kandagawa Pervert Wars , this film marks the directorial debut of Masayuki Suo who would later achieve international fame for his film Shall We Dance? Abnormal Family: Older Brother's Bride has been discussed by movie critics as an homage to or parody of the family dramas of early Japanese director Yasujirō Ozu. [3] [4] Jasper Sharp says it wittily puts together the plots of a number of Ozu's best known works within the framework of a pink film. Suo also uses the trademark camera angles, visual effects and stylized movements from Ozu's films in contrast with the sexual antics of this genre. [3]

Availability

The film was released theatrically in Japan in June 1984 [2] and published as a DVD in Japan on June 28, 2002 by Uplink (アップリンク). [5] It had earlier (May 2000) been released in Video CD format with Chinese and English subtitles by Asia Video Publishing Company. [6]
