The leader of an underground gang wants to collaborate with the gang in the Northern of Thailand to control the supply of weapon in Hong Kong, but unexpectedly, the game is changed by a newly formed gang.
A silly and predominantly softcore sex farce with some hardcore scenes. The humorous narrator explains the sex habits of the twelve signs of the zodiac as the ancient Roman festival of Venus presided by the goddess herself begins.
A number of the regular Shaw Bros. cast appear in this really silly film about magic swords, a magic bow and arrows, magic lutes and so on. Everybody is on wires at least half the time and all the weapons used are absurd.
Does that make this a bad film? Well... I enjoyed it after it became clear that this was intended for a younger audience (at least I hope it was). Giant axes, remote controlled flying swords, a chariot drawn by dogs, a guy with an arm that can stretch 20 feet, fighting scissors, a bird man, exploding... wait, that's enough, you get it. The lute of the title will remind people a bit of "Kung Fu Hustle". The little girl in the film is really good. She keeps up with the other actors.
