Sexy, seductive, Kiki; Tae oh so sweet
29 January 2007 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Koichi Sato gets all the best parts. He gets it on with two great women in this film. And no doubt he was paid well for the privilege, too... Kiki is new to me, but I'll be looking out for her from now on. Nobody has ever worn a red silk negligee so well. The woman has legs that go on forever, as one great shot reveals when she runs her toes down Sato's back. Tae Kimura's sweet beauty contrasts well with the hot sensuality of Kiki, the Ziyi Zhang compared to Kiki's Li Gong. In one scene they both wear kimono, and Tae wins that round on points - Kiki looks better undressed.

The story, about a guy torn between the comfort of a beautiful wife and the passion of a young lover, is told in flashbacks, slowly revealing a more sinister side to the events that begin to plague Sato's Arisu. The plotting keeps you guessing till the very end - beyond that, in fact. Lush and sensuous, tragic and beautiful, Starfish Hotel is a feast for the senses - and a treat for fans of eye candy.
