Born in 1948, Tani Naomi is a great Roman Porno icon. Nicknamed the "Marilyn Monroe of bondage", she was discovered by one of the most prominent Japanese movie studios, Nikkatsu. Tani Naomi specialized in sadomasochist films and became an international star of Japanese erotic cinema, like Pam Grier with 70s exploitation cinema. She retired in 1979, boasting a career of more than a hundred films. The recent retrospectives and books about her work are proof that fans’ devotion is still very much alive thirty years after she retired from the screen.

"Tani Naomi turned to erotic cinema the way one would turn to religion. Giving 100% of herself to cameras hungry to capture her generous curves and lick her immaculate flesh, she would only follow one commandment: to fulfill her male spectators’ fantasies.  She would indulge in bondage and quartering, which make up the controversial world of S&M. ‘Ropes suit me just fine!’ she said.

The most Italian of Japanese actresses, whose curves competed with Gina Lollobrigida’s, thus established herself for 12 years—from 1967 to 1979—as the queen of the genre, subjecting her body, as early as 19, to the tortured geometry of shibari--Japanese bondage. Her erotic novitiate, puntuacted by a hundred pinky eiga –of which about thirty were shot between 1971 and 1979 within the prestigious Roman Porno series which made her a star—still etches delicious marks upon minds and bodies."

The Festival will give tribute to Naomi Tani, who will present two of her films during Japanese Roman Porno Night:

Inside the pleasure dome of japanese erotic cinema

Black Rose Ascension

by  Tatsumi Kumashiro (Japan, 1975, original version with English + French subtitles), presented by Naomi Tani.

 

A filmmaker, journalist and film programmer, Yves Montmayeur has been directing since 1999 documentaries about cinema with a focus on Asian films, excentric authors and atypical characters. Montmayer is passionate about alternative cultures and sub-genres and will present, in exclusivity, his latest picture, Inside the pleasure dome of japanese erotic cinema.

Nicknamed “the Marilyn Monroe of bondage”,Naomi Tani is a real icon of porn novel. Actress entirely dedicated to her art, she specializes herself in sadomasochistic films and becomes an international star of Japanese erotic cinema.
