Part of 邵氏兄弟 Shaw Brothers Retrospective
Directed by Chu Yuan. 1972. Hong Kong. 90 min. Mandarin with English subtitles.
The most famous erotic film in the history of Hong Kong cinema, Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan shocked Chinese audiences in 1972, and exerts a raw power even today. Lily Ho, in her most daring role, is an aristocratic maiden abducted and sold to the Four Seasons Brothel. Quickly becoming the brothel's most desirable courtesan, she finds herself caught up in a web of sex, murder, and intrigue involving an official in the imperial court and a neurotic courtesan who harbors an unrequited love for her. All in all, it's pretty hot stuff handled with flair and style by noted director Chu Yuan.
