Storyline

Story is begin with the childhood of rich and powerful Simon Qing (Lam Wai-Kin) has been schooled in the ways of sex by his virile father (Tsui Siu-Keung), but is still a virgin. That is, until he meets his first love Violetta, who has fun with him all over his father's estate. Their love does not last, so Simon embarks on a journey to, um, do something. Along the way he meets the comely nun Moon, who observes his manhood one evening by poking at it with a pair of chopsticks - thus earning the film it's English title. Simon deflowers her and marries her, after which he becomes enamored of the small-footed Golden Lotus, who's married to dwarf and poor Wu Da-Lang. The two conspire to get rid of him, setting up another marriage for Simon. Written by Chen Siong

After a humane Ximen Qing
3 January 2010 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I have seen a number of Jin Ping Mei adaptations that take great liberties for creating a protagonist much more sympathetic than Ximen Qing (or Saimun Hing as you are likely to hear in Cantonese) is actually portrayed in the novel. Frankly, being a typical social parasite who uses his material wealth and other possible means to serve his sexual appetite and to ensure the subjugation of lesser people, he is no likable fellow at all. However, "Sex & Chopsticks" move further than its predecessors did and creates a rather compassionate background to Ximen Qing's exploits. Even his cruelest act, the murder of Lotus' husband is justified with his deep romantic interest in the woman. In this sense, the film suffers from some defects not very different from those shared by most adaptations of classical literary works. On the other hand, veteran Norman Chui presents the convincing portrait of a sexual gong fu master and Japanese actresses are really worth their respective roles. The story is continued in the second film and I wonder how it is handled in the follow-up.
