Karei-naru tsuiseki - A female champion race car driver who also doubles as a James Bond like undercover agent is sent out on a mission by the Japanese government to destroy a drug lord syndicate, which also murdered her father.
While the story is pure 70's Exploitation and Gritty Crime Drama, the action is over-the-top and at times hilarious (i.e. Shihomi battling the lead criminal atop a moving gondola or Shihomi battling a whip-wielding Catholic Nun), but the best reason to see it is for the Martial Arts Action of Shihomi.
1975 Color 16:9 ANAMORPHIC Widescreen 83 Min.
