About Underwater Love DVD

What happens when you combine the revered talents of Aussie cinematographer Chris Doyle with the electro-pop styling’s of Germany’s Stereo Total and the hyper-perverse musings of Japan’s most famous pink film director Shinji Imaoka? You get UNDERWATER LOVE, the world’s very first pink musical!

Asuka is a 35 year old fish factory worker who begins to question her recent engagement after she is visited by formerly deceased lover in the form of a half-man, half-turtle entity known as a Kappa.

Alternating bizarre sex scenes with glorious musical numbers, UNDERWATER LOVE is a hilarious, compassionate, stunningly photographed oddity – truly unlike any film ever made.

Explicit sex and show tunes – how can you possibly go wrong?

An all-singing all-dancing spectacular... bubble gum pop perfection... one of the best-looking Pinku films of all time


A frequently delightful and unclassifiable pleasurebox
