Datai (1966)

Wakamatsu Production (Japan)
Directed by Masao Adachi
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4

A gynecologist decides the answer to the problem of unwanted pregnancies is an artificial placenta. He creates one in the back room of his clinic, then uses the living fetus from one of his patients to see if it works. The whole story is told in flashback, since he ends up in jail when the authorities discover it. A poor excuse for an exploitation flick, complete with real human birth footage, sex education diagrams and young women getting naked for their procedures. Classical music tries but fails to give it an air of respectability.
