The Pink Lady (1991) mere words cannot describe this Category III classic. Films like this are rare in the Hong Kong Cinema. Normally found in European Cinema, a film like this one is a rare treat. I heard rumors about the existence of this film. i tracked down a copy a few years back, boy was I in for a surprise.
The story is about a relationship between two school girls. As they get older it blossoms into a true romance. That is until one day one of them grows weary of their "forbidden love". The director took advantage of the lax Category III film classification and made a steamy film filled with several beautifully filmed and staged girl-on-girl scenes. Even though the film is pure exploitation, the director tried to make a story out of movie. He did a very good job and should be commended for bringing out such emotion from these two novice actresses.
I was very pleased by this picture. Sadly it has never been re-issued on D.V.D. and it's nearly impossible to find. Oh well, maybe someday it'll see the light of day and it'll get the true respect it deserves. An absolute classic!
Highest recommendation possible.
