Default Zoom Up: Graduation Photo (Yoshihiro Kawasaki, 1983)

Zmu appu: Sotsugyo shashin

Sleazy look at the lives of people involved in the porno mag industry. Yoko needs some money so she does some nude modelling for a porn mag sold in vending machines. She becomes deeper involved as the acts she does for the camera gets sleazier and sleazier. Unless I missed something, probably did, I was several beers in, I didn't catch where the 'graduation' part of the title fits into the story.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. This looks to be the only film credit for the lead actress, Reiko Nakamura, which is too bad, as she was great in this. The transfer isn't so great though, with some sections looking pretty rough and other sections looking watchable. I'm guessing it's a tape transfer as many of these recent releases has been.

Reiko Nakamura appeared in some other notable films, too. She was the female lead in Koji Wakamatsu's amazing A Pool without Water (1982), Tatsumi Kumashiro's masterpiece Rolling on the Road (1981) and Yoichi Sai's The Mosquito on the Tenth Floor (1983) (which people love, but I just found boring).

She was also in The Second Love (1983) (the DVD art you posted) but I haven't seen in and the DVD cover credits Reiko Ohara as the lead so I'm assuming Nakamura played a supporting role.

Ok, so it is the same actress, I wasn't so sure, since imdb has several actress entries with that name, and the one from those films was different than than the one from Zoom Up. I thought they might be the same, but since I hadn't seen them, couldn't be for sure.
