The Title Says It All
19 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a remake of one from the 70's about a young lady named Ai Nu, played by Hu Kwan-Chan, who is forced into prostitution. The keeper of the place called Merryland is Lady Chun, and she tries her best to make Ai Nu feel at home. There are violent scenes in this film, including martial arts and gang rape, as well as murder. There is also some lesbian erotica, as well as men/women. Surprisingly, there is not much nudity in it, very unlike, lets say, "Sex And Zen". As with other Shaw Brothers films, the costumes and sets are impeccable. Its not a bad film by any means, and the two female leads are very attractive, but there isn't anything essential going on. Its fine, a little better than average. If you're into this kind of film, then watch it. Otherwise, you can skip it.
