Summary Pigs and battleships: Portrays postwar Japan throught the power struggles between small-time gangsters in the port town of Yokosuka, where there are American soldiers based.
The insect woman: Portrays 45 years in the life of a woman, from her country childhood through the years as a ruthless Tokyo madam and back to her native village.
Intentions of murder: Sadako is a typical Imamura heroine: one who revels in the pleasures of food, labor, sex, and self-preservation. Carrying the burden of her status as a lowly, poor, prostitute-birthed commoner wife, Sadako is subjected to an escalating series of belittlement both at home and in society.
