Time Out says

Sex, God and Greed play their parts in one of Imamura's most ambitious and powerful films, a rich earthy fable set on a Pacific island where ancient beliefs come head-to-head with 20th century capitalism. The company engineer sent from Tokyo to build an airport exhorts the peasants to 'Forget the Gods!', but goes native himself when he's seduced by a half-witted harpy. It all ends badly.
