Consanguineous Couples in Japanese Movies

Breakstudios lists a few “Japanese Movie Kisses,” saying…

Japanese movie kisses are often met with drama and romance. Japanese cinema is always aware of the emotions involved in every touch, smile, and kiss. Here are a few Japanese movie kisses that are noteworthy.

Here are the ones I could pick out as being relevant to readers of this blog…

1. "Animusu Anima." This Japanese movie tells the story of a young hairdresser and his sister. The hairdresser, Tokio, is a womanizer and modern-day player and his young sister is shy and timid. The sister goes away on a trip with her friend, who just so happens to be in love with her. They share an intimate moment and when the sister returns, she begins an incestuous relationship with her brother, Tokio. They share a scene when they first kiss and its an awkward, bizarre scene to say the least. However, it showcases their behavior as a result of thwarted love.


3. "My Sister, My Love." The title of this Japanese film leaves little to the imagination. This film is about a pair of twins who begin having a relationship together. However, their love for one another isn't about the sex. The kissing scenes in this film are mostly about curiosity and some sort of sweeping innocence. They delicately kiss another to show affection. At its core, this film is about a love that will never work and is doomed in every sense of the word.

Have you seen either of these?
