This poster was made to promote the roman porno flick Danchizuma Amayadori no Joji, which is generally known in English by the title Apartment Wife: Rainy Day Affair, but also by the more lyrical title Apartment Wife: Take Shelter from the Rain. Bored housewife Junko Miyashita attends a reunion, which sets off an affair with an ex-classmate. Sex, liberation, betrayal, consequences. Oh, and lots of rain. But the thing about rain is that the sun always comes out eventually, and Miyashita knows exactly what to do when that happens. See below. Danchizuma Amayadori no Joji—also starring Yu Mizuki, who we last saw here—premiered in Japan today in 1977.

Getting deeper into those two-thousand Japanese posters we mentioned, here’s a promo for Shôgorô Nishimura’s Danchizuma: nikutai kinyu, which in English was called Apartment Wife: Flesh Financing. There were twenty-one of these Apartment Wife movies made by Nikkatsu Studios during the 1970s, and they mostly focused on the sexual predicaments of working class women. This one is supposedly one of the best, but we can’t say because we haven’t been able to track it down. It starred Yu Mizuki, who also appeared in 1977’s Danchizuma: amayadori no joji, aka Apartment Wife: Rainy Day Affair, as well as several other productions. Danchizuma: nikutai kinyu premiered in Japan today in 1976.
