Carmen from Kawachi
(河内カルメン Kawachi Karumen)

Seijun Suzuki

Swapping country life for the big city, young Carmen escapes her miserable life at home to travel to Osaka, becoming a hugely popular nightclub singer with men falling at her feet. This experimental, new wave film by iconoclastic director Seijun Suzuki (Tokyo Drifter, Branded to Kill), is the third and final part of his womencentered ‘Flesh Trilogy’ (along with Gate of Flesh and Story of a Prostitute) and stars Yumiko Nogawa, Suzuki’s favourite collaborator as the titular Carmen.
