An intense, no-holds-barred exploration of perversion, art and sado-masochism. A blind sculptor, with the aid of his mother, kidnaps and imprisons a young fashion model as a muse for his efforts to sculpt the perfect form. Set in a Dali-esque artist's studio covered in sculptures of giant eyeballs, over-sized limbs and assorted body parts, this incredibly visually inventive tale of madness and sexual obsession powers to a climax prefiguring Oshima's In The Realm of the Senses while recalling Franju's Eyes Without A Face. A call-to-arms for Outsider Art.
