Wandering Ginza butterfly trailers


Wandering Ginza Butterfly is a classic 1971 exploitation flick featuring Japanese actress Meiko Kaji.   In the movie she plays gang leader Nami who kills a member of a yakuza mafia group and goes away to prison. Upon her release three years later, she’s a shamed woman confined to living in the shadowy world of sex clubs and street gangs.

She returns to the city to live with her uncle, a billiard-hall owner, and after befriending pimp and local troublemaker Ryuji (Tsunehiko Watase), she gets a job working at a hostess club in the chic Ginza neighborhood, where the expensive shops and neon lights conceal a dark world of crime and sexual slavery.

When a rival gang attempts to muscle in on the club, Nami becomes enmeshed in a violent struggle that forces her to wield a skilled pool cue to defend her uncle s business, and eventually a short sword to wreak bloody vengeance upon her enemies.

In part 2 of the movie series Wandering Ginza Butterfly 2: She-Cat Gambler Nami (Meiko Kaji, returning to her role from the original) is back in a new story that finds her on the hunt for Hoshiden, the man who killed her gambler father when she was only a child. Arriving in Tokyo, Nami takes a job as a hostess in a swank Ginza club, all the while combing the back-alleys and gambling dens for news of Hoshiden s whereabouts. Local street entrepreneur Ryuji (the Street Fighter himself, Sonny Chiba) joins her in the search and revenge on Hoshiden.
