Female Teacher: Dirty Afternoon does have its own unique place in cinematic history, that is for sure. The movie is helmed by Nikkatsu veteran Kichitaro Negishi, who directed Wet Weekend (1979) amongst other notable features. The movie itself is also part of a long line of “Female Teacher” movies, a series that began in 1973 with legendary director Masaru Konuma’s Female Teacher: Delicious Life. The films, as you might expect, have nothing to do with each other and instead solely focus on the sexual lives of teachers and often their students. Odd enough, this film has very little in it to remind you of its gimmick. There are a few references to the Yuki character being a teacher, but the film never takes us inside of the classroom and instead focuses on her life outside of work. This, you would think, might make the movie all the more interesting, but it isn’t a title that thinks far outside of the box. Although there is a decent amount of “action” within the movie, the film starts to feel rather labored in its pacing. The interesting moments are spaced too far apart, the character of Yuki doesn’t have a home life that truly grabs the audience’s attention, and ultimately the project seems to stutter between the various sex scenes.
