|The Plot: Our film opens in a girls reformatory that more aptly resembles a prison, and it is here that we meet Midori (Yumiko Katayama) and Rika (Reiko Oshida). Midori is a rough and tumble girl with family issues, but Rika is a helpful, almost naive, delinquent herself. Middori’s father, who loves her but disaproves of her yakuza boyfriend, comes to the gate and hands a family necklace to Rika so that she can pass it along to his daughter. Midori doesn’t want the trinket however and acts offended when Rika tries to give it to her. After both girls are released from school/prison, Rika heads off to live with Midori’s father, Muraki, who owns a mechanics shop. His situation is rather dire though, as Midori has been living a very selfish life with her boyfriend and they have racked up huge debts with some local yakuza thugs that Muraki now has to pay. Knowing that Rika has nowhere else to stay, Muraki allows her to live on site and work. Rika tries to patch things up between Midori and her father, but Midori is still as stubborn as ever. She soon meets up with her old friends from the reform school, including Mari who is pregnant and out of work because her husband’s illness has caused her to have troubles with her former employers and the debts she could not pay off. With Rika’s help, these girls will have to form together in order to solve all of their problems!|
The best aspect about Worthless to Confess is going to be the cast. The beautiful Reiko Oshida contributes everything that she can to her role, but the male pigs in the audience (myself included) will have to drag our eyes away from her beautiful legs every five minutes. Sporting a pair of very short-shorts, Oshida shows off her naturally thick thighs and drives the male (or female!) audience wild. A true beauty, she actually proves to be quite the talent in this film. She stretches out and handles a multi-faceted character who is difficult to read, but is always charismatic and engaging. Rika strikes the audience as naive, due to her inappropriate attitudes, but there is a certain amount of clever ulterior motives at foot in all of her actions. I like the way Oshida plays this off, really finding that perfect balance that allows her to be silly and sexy at equal times. Although she at first appears to be ignorant, she grows on the audience throughout the picture. Aside from Oshida we also have the beautiful Yumiko Katayama who plays Midori, and is perhaps best known for appearances in genre favorites like The Horrors of Malformed Man, Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion and Criminal Woman: Killing Melody. She is actually the only actress in the film to really show any kind of skin. The nudity is rather inoffensive, mostly in place to show off the tremendous tattoo that Katayam sports for this film, which is a nest of vines and flowers across her back that stretches out to her right breast and forms as a rose on her nipple. The tattoo is really impressive to tell the truth and one of the more unique criminal tattoos that I have seen in a girl-gang film at this point.
