Based on the best-selling novel about a woman who decides that her one goal in life is to have her tongue split, this is the sexy body modification movie you've been waiting for. Yuriko Yoshitaka gives an incredibly raw, totally exposed performance that's cleaning up at the awards and she's the anchor for this emotional, erotic, disturbing and seductive movie for anyone who ever looked at a pierced tongue and thought, "Well, maybe…" .
