The capitalist Morita dreamed of making a full-dress private SM film and asked a SM writer Goro for advice. A lovely university girl was introduced to Morita by the degraded film director Yoshimoto. Orie's family had a lot of debt and was desperately in need of cash. Morita selected his basement room as a shooting studio. This was not what Orie had agreed to and she tried to resist but she was tied up naked and confined with her counterpart university boy in the cage. Orie was forced to give up human pride and become an animal. Morita and others continued to watch through the video camera from a different room. And the bizarre SM film shooting started...

George Mélies made a version of this a few years later, often titled Une Indigestion, but Guy-Blaché’s earlier film Chirurgie Fin de Siecle (1900) is more widely available. And it’s not one to watch the night before an operation.

They then reattach arms and legs from a bucket of “exchange pieces” (using glue) before re-animating their victim, I mean patient, with bellows.
