A cab driver is searching for his wife who has been missing for sometime. Then he hears something from his wife's colleague who is a beautician. She tells him that before his wife went missing, she implied that she was going to a hot spring retreat, hidden deep in the snowy mountains. As he visits the mountains with the colleague, he develops a strange relationship with her. But little does he know that she is the one who killed his wife and disposed of her decapitated body parts in a park trash bin.

Taro Suwa, everyone's favourite Japanese film pro-trooper of close to a trillion titles in just about any and all genres you can care to think of and a previous star of another Takahisa Zeze movie, Hysteric, plays Murakami, a cab driver whose wife Mayumi has gone missing. He fears that she may have run off with another man (and this is partly the case, as she was knocking off both her boss and also another colleague, Sawai, on the side) - or gotten into trouble by involving herself with a 'telephone dating club' (echoes of Raigyo here again), a service which hooks up strangers looking for easy, anonymous sex, no questions asked. However, neither of these are the case: in fact (and this is not spoilertastic, since this event takes place within the first eight minutes of the movie), she has been murdered by a morose woman (not named throughout the duration of the movie), who has a day job at the beauty salon which his wife worked at, and who is also married, with a small son. After offing Mayumi in her living-room, she dispassionately chops the body up in the bathroom and later, after taking her son to school, she deposits the remains into several disparate trashbins around town. However, on nearly getting caught dropping off the last two bags into a bin, she decides instead to put them into a coin locker at the station. But what, exactly, was this woman's motive to kill Mayumi? It seems that she was, simply, jealous of everything Mayumi had. Mayumi was leaving to start her own beauty salon; she had probably also been having an affair with Sawai, with whom the murderess had also been having an affair. So when Murakami turns up at the salon, under the false impression that Mayumi has run off with the boss, it is the murderess who intervenes to help him. After finding out that some of the bags containing Mayumi's corpse have been found, she spins Murakami a yarn about how Mayumi had said she might be going to a snowy spa retreat up in the mountains. So together they go to the spa resort, ostensibly to look for the missing wife. However, they end up having a relationship, mostly born of necessity: Murakami partly out of spite against his runaway, cheating wife, and the murderess partly to try and protect herself now that the details of her crime are about to go public, by implying that Mayumi went to the spa with Sawai, which would of course put him in the frame for Mayumi's murder when it comes to light. But there is more to it than that: they become bound together by the fact of their meaningless lives which both pivot around the disappearance of Mayumi and which will inevitably both be destroyed by her death. Takahisa Zeze is a master of both atmosphere and character development in his pinku eiga, which kind of begs the question: why can't he carry it off within the framework of his more mainstream titles? Neither the tedious Kokkuri nor the appalling Moon Child came anywhere close to replicating the beauty and sadness of his softcore/art movies, which is a terrible shame, as he is clearly a director gifted with both true talent and vision. Although Dirty Maria is perhaps more of a bitterly bleak, piteous human drama than the thematically rich Raigyo, it's still a beautiful, difficult and disturbing piece and has a great deal of depth, with much to say about sex, jealousy, empathy, mortality and the fragility of life. Definitely a very worthy piece that anyone with a taste for the darker end of the arthouse spectrum should see.

Violent Japanese erotic horror. A taxi driver has been searching for his missing wife for some time, and when he hears that she could be hiding in a mountain retreat, he sets off with one of his wife's friends to find her. Gradually, the man finds himself drawn to the woman, little realising that she was responsible for the brutal murder and dismemberment of his wife.
