Seventies icon Junko Miyashita plays a redheaded hitchhiker who enters the life of a depraved construction worker in this dark, celebrated erotic drama. Dubbed “one of the very best Nikkatsu pink films” by the Japanese Cinema Encyclopedia, The Woman with Red Hair becomes a marathon session of obsessive desire and unsatisfied dreams, acted out in a down-and-out working-class milieu. One of the best works by a major director in the genre.
