Plot Summary:

"Guilty of Romance" tells a terrifying tale of sex and violence through the lives of three different women: a police detective, a professor and a housewife. Set just before the turn of the 21st century, the film blends film noir with drama, in a perfect showcase of the director’s unique aesthetics and use of highly saturated colors. "Guilty of Romance" weaves a disturbing tale of escape of patriarchy and oppression -- and is considered by many as the most exhilarating part of Sono's "hate" trilogy.
