GUILTY OF ROMANCE is a Japanese thriller, subtitled in English. Police detective Yoshida investigates a gruesome murder when two mutilated bodies are found in an abandoned apartment in a Tokyo red light district.

Sex

The film contains a number of scenes of strong sex, including a woman being surprised in a bath and masturbated under water, a couple having uninhibited sex in a toilet, a woman having sex with a man in the shower of a 'love hotel', and a woman having sex with a man during the shooting of a porn film.

There is also a scene of erotic asphyxiation, in which a man pays a woman to choke him during sexual activity, in order to help him reach climax. However, the potentially lethal nature of the practice is clear and the practice is not glamorised or promoted.

Violence

A scene of sexual violence shows a man, who has just engaged in consensual sexual activity with a woman, refuses to allow her to leave. He then restrains the woman and forces her to phone her husband to apologise for not returning home, as he continues to thrust into her. The woman is clearly distressed and the focus is on her lack of consent and the man's brutality.

There is use of strong language ('f**k').

The film also features one scene in which an adult woman squats down and appears to urinate in front of two young children. However, no nudity is shown and there is no sexual element to the scene.
