Osamu Sato is the most highly regarded up-and-coming Pink Eiga director and writer. He began his career as an assistant director on Satoru Kobayashi’s film (a legendary Pink Eiga director, who directed over 400 films) in 1995. He has worked with Akira Fukamachi (Secret in the Attic, Semen Demon), Yutaka Ikejima (Moon Light Dinner) and Mototsugu Watanabe (Sexy Battle Girls, Sexy S.W.A.T. Team) since 1997, as assistant director. He learned to direct and organize Pink Eiga from these great filmmakers. Sato has been an assistant director on over 130 Pink Eiga films so far. In 1996 alone, he assisted on 21 films.
His directorial debut was in 2002 with “The Wife Boutique.” His directorial style and skill gained instant appreciation from this inaugural film. His films are creative works that capture emotional drama in its raw, true form. Sato is particularly good at representing authentic women. He presents a girl who finds out her lifework is S&M in, “New Tokyo Decadence – The Slave” (2007).
“Coming Out” (2005) depicts a lesbian girl who is hiding her lesbianism from her boyfriend as she struggles to come to terms with her homosexuality and change her life. Therefore, his films are touching for female audiences.
He was praised for “New Tokyo Decadence – The Slave,” which is Pink Eiga actress Rinako Hirasawa’s autobiographical film (Rinako Hirasawa plays herself in this film).
