Sex entwined with death and politics finds an even more ardent interpretation in this film, which begins with the martial-sexual posturing of a group of men and one woman, presumably before they commit collective suicide. Presumably, for snatches of images of novelist/actor/ultra-nationalist Mishima Yukio and his ritual suicide are interspersed with the sequence as a kind of parallel commentary on it. The spirit of Mishima undeniably hovers above the film, which was made only a few weeks following Mishima’s actual suicide by seppuku (disembowelment) in November 1970 in the face of a failed coup d’état.
Filmed in gorgeous black-and-white, The Woman Who Wanted To Die is a dynamic mélange of past and present as well as a direct homage-of-sorts to what could be called the death aesthetics of Mishima. The temptation of and obsession over the idea of a beautiful, violent death cuts across Mishima’s novels, short stories, his short film Patriotism (1966), and film characters. Of course, this temptation, obsession, and beauty are bound up with a call to revolution in the actual world.
