Did You Know?

Trivia

'Vietnam Rose', the name of the lethal venereal disease that actress 'Chen Ping''s character contracted as a victim of a brutal gang rape by a group of thugs was also considered by Shaw Brothers to be the original English title for the feature 'Du nu' until social activists complained to the studio that the negative connotation of the title was discriminatory and reactionary towards the ethnic Vietnamese community during a time when the growing influx of war refugees populating Hong Kong en-masse after the fall of Saigon. A not too subtle message mirroring then current events where the film's elements and lurid subject matter would became an indirect metaphor for the politically charged issue of illegal immigration and anti-immigrant sentiment in the former colony. The English title for 'Du nu' would ultimately be changed to 'The Kiss of Death'. See more »

Chen Ping Gets the Job Done
9 August 2005 | by (STL) – See all my reviews

This is a quintessential Shaw Bros. revenge flick with Chen Ping giving a ball-busting performance as the broken and beaten factory girl who learns 'killer kung fu' in order seek retribution. Though not for the easily offended, I felt this movie's grit and gravitas was thoroughly satisfying. Lo Lieh is awesome as the crippled club owner with a soft side, and Chen Ping continues to amaze me with her body of work in everything from period chopsocky ('Vengeful Beauty') to monster movie damsel in distress ('Oily Maniac') to ( my favorite ) hellacious killing machine (as in this film and 'Sexy Killer'). Recommended to those who enjoy seeing Chen Ping stick it to the man, and not so much to those who don't see the beauty in revenge-through-castration.
