Tony Ka Fai Leung,
A color-blind psychiatrist Bill Capa is stalked by an unknown killer after taking over his murdered friend's therapy group, all of whom have a connection to a mysterious young woman that Capa begins having intense sexual encounters with.
I've just read "Arthur Blose"'s comment on this film and it's really hard to add anything to it since it's so crystalline but still, I have to say, too, how stupid this movie is since nobody seems to believe him. Anyways, this 17 year old girl sells herself to three guys for a year so that they can fulfill their fantasies. You'll expect that she'll realize how disgusting it is or how fulfilling it is to be in control or that she's a victim. Since it's a hard subject you're expecting some epiphany, something big, right ? And that's the problem, unless you're looking for glimpses of panties and mimics of sex/passion, there is nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing in this movie ! The acting is awful, or tired at best, the photography and decoration is cheap-80's, and the result feels like being at a drama rehearsal - backstage. In the end, the girl thanks her abusers for turning her into a woman. At that point, you're supposed to feel sick but this flick is so laughable that you're just glad it's over and you can go back to reality - something that this movie fails to connect with in every possible way.
