Where else but in this can you get episodic, action set pieces served with leftist politics?
5 January 2013 | by (Upmarket Residences of Rajagiriya) – See all my reviews

The former-agent of FBI loves a rich and much older man (played by Kinski). She is willing to do everything he wants to show her love, but he is playing a sick game with her. As part of this game he sends her to a Chinese brothel.

Where to start...

Sir Stephen and his mother are supposed to be 'close.' In fact, they are so close he calls her 'my sister' and she calls him 'my brother.' If this doesn't strike you as odd, wait for the scene when Sir Stephen strolls into the bathroom when his mother is taking a bath. Yes, there is obviously some rot at the heart of these kinky French hookers, and Sir Stephen's tasteless relationship with his sister, Isabelle, takes it one step further. Isabelle, who looks like a failed cross between Grunge and Goth is annoyingly clingy and morose. Yet Sir Stephen dumps his 'close' relationship with mummy, his castle, and his career, and abandons all to live with the gloomy Isabelle in squalor with a bunch of equally bizarre social refugees.

Forget plot. Forget logic. Forget motivation. Just prepare yourself for a 10-star self-indulgent vomfest of a film.
