Seijun Suzuki directed this hard-hitting account of a woman who volunteers to serve as a "comfort woman" (prostitute to the Japanese army) at the Manchurian front in 1937. Harumi (Yukimo Nogawa) is desperate to get out of Japan to escape the memory of a doomed romance. She offers to serve the Army in Manchuria, where the sadistic Lieutenant Narita (Isao Tamagawa) uses her violently and wants her as his private servant. However, Harumi has become infatuated with Mikami (Tamio Kawachi), Narita's subordinate, and they embark on an affair that would mean certain punishment for both of them if it were ever to be discovered. Diary Of A Prostitute was based on a novel by Taijiro Tamura, which was previously filmed (in bowdlerized form) in 1950 as Escape At Dawn. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

12/2012 Shot in bw and subtitled, this film is not really about sxx, it is about the comfort girl who is in love with a junior officer that has no experience with women. At the same time she is the subject of the possessiveness of the commander, and must continue to serve him as well as the other soldiers. She ran away from one doomed romance to fling herself into another one. Not at the top of my list for recommendations, but if you want to drink 2 or 3 bottles of sake and go Japanese, and be depressed about it, this is the film for you.
