29 October 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

First of all the movie is not really 10 star movie, just gave it that on a whim, maybe to balance out it's not so high rating...

It is my believe that most people mistake that movie for pornography, that is a misconception, of course this kind of movie would be totally unacceptable as a movie in the some countries, especially in the USA.

But it is in fact a movie, with a simple, straight forward plot, yet all the more captivating for it. What most fascinated me was the sort of inevitability of the "story". I don't recommend taking the development we see here as a common phenomena, but that is not the point. I believe that the "fantastic" element in this movie makes it so gripping, for that which some one fantasizes about but is not able to do in reality, is still a reality in itself, in his/her mind.

And that is the reason, I would wager, why most people are revolted by this movie, for it makes real (at least in fiction) what in a nearly infinite variety of speculation has crossed the imaginations and minds of mankind, but which is rarely (more or less ;) acted upon.

OK now here the truth: Everything written above was my opinion after seeing 10 minutes of this film. Now, after finishing this ridiculous, utterly hilarious, totally over the top movie, I have to say that I couldn't stop laughing the whole time. It is a master piece, I have rarely seen a better parody of...yeah what exactly? That an unhappy choice for one individual may prove of great satisfaction (or better greater good) for the whole (an Asian family theme ?!?;). That just sex isn't everything or is? Depending on the situation... Whatever the movie blew my mind, with it's shameless fearlessness to indulge into the fantasy (with variation to specifics of course) of every sex deprived individual, outrageous and unhindered by moral or taboo, to indulge, to just indulge.

P.S. Consider the first part of my Preview as obsolete, BS, but for the sake of record I'll leave it there.
