Directed by Kon Ichikawa and written by his wife Natsuto Wada, Ten Dark Women is a black comedy, spiced with a convoluted crime-drama plot, about the revenge of a group of women over a philanderer. Spinelessly keeping nine mistresses, TV producer Kaze becomes paranoid, with ample reason, that his mistresses are planning on killing him. He turns to his shrewd wife, Futaba, who has long given up on their marriage, but revels in business. She plots against the mistresses, who are then caught up in their own mind games.
