FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION: #701’S GRUDGE SONG

Yasuharu Hasebe, Japan, 1973, Arrow Films, Crime - Japan

“From ‘fuck the police’, to fucking the police!” -- Joe Bonelli, Letterboxd

The four-film FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION cycle charts the vengeance of Nami Matsushima (Meiko Kaji, LADY SNOWBLOOD, the STRAY CAT ROCK series), who becomes an avatar of survival and an unlikely symbol of female resistance in a male-dominated world. Spiritual kin to MS. 45, COFFY and THE BRIDE WORE BLACK!

The series finale shows a gentler side of Nami, as she falls in with an ex-radical suffering from physical and psychological trauma caused by police torture.
