Lust from Love of a Chinese Courtesan (1984)

4/10 - Trashier remake of INTIMATE CONFESSIONS
Reviewed by Simon on 10 March 2004

I don't know why Chor Yuen felt the need to do a trashier remake of his classic Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan with a weaker cast, less coherent plot and sloppier production values, but apparently he did. Perhaps he wanted to counter the delicious cynicism of the original with... vacuousness (vacuity?).

Typically nice Chor Yuen sets and cinematography, but illustrates as well as anything else how much Shaw Brothers films had declined by 1984.
