√964 Pinocchio (1991)

Unearthed Films
Directed by Shôjin Fukui
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
(DVD, Unearthed)

A mindless sex slave is released into the streets of Tokyo when he fails to perform. He befriends a girl living in a concrete bunker deep inside a bleak industrial complex. She teaches him to talk, feeds him and eventually they have sex. This changes her personality and she begins to deteriorate both physically and mentally. Meanwhile, the owner of the slave has sent out a couple of henchman to get him back. Frenetic "cyber punk" film owes quite a bit to Tetsuo, but it's still quite a ride in its own right.
