Critical appraisal[edit]

In their Japanese Cinema Encyclopedia: The Sex Films, the Weissers give Lady Chatterly in Tokyo a rating of two out of four. They contend that by changing the lead female character from the loyal wife with unsatisfied sexual needs, in Lawrence's original Lady Chatterley's Lover, Lady Chatterly in Tokyo removes the social and psychological conflict in the novel. "...all human interest", they write", "is missing from director Fujii's banal version. Instead, he merely offers a superficial adulterous story with little or no relationship to Lawrence's characters."[2]

The film was not popular with the usual pink film and Roman Porno audience. It was advertised as a "love story", and proved surprisingly popular with female audiences, not the usual target for the Roman Porno series.[2]


Lady Chatterley In Tokyo was released theatrically in Japan on August 20, 1977.[1] It was released on VHS in Japan on May 25, 1989, and re-released in April 1995.[6][7]
