Movie Info

The legendary Shaw Brothers push boundaries and smash taboos with this outrageous tale of a beautiful young woman who learns a deadly fighting technique after being abducted and sold off to the infamous Four Seasons brothel. Ai Nu was just a young innocent when she was ripped from her family and sold into a life of prostitution. Upon arriving at the Four Seasons brothel, Ai Nu is bestowed the secrets of the mystical martial arts by the lusty madam in charge. One of the techniques, the "Ghost Hands," gives Ai Nu the power to kill a man by plunging her bare hands straight into his chest. Later, a rash of murders in the brothel leads a local policeman to suspect that someone is out for revenge. Lily Ho and Betty Pei Ti star in the audacious kung-fu classic that inspired the action-packed cult hit Naked Killer (1994). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

½

"Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan" starts out with a young woman, Ai Nu, being kidnapped and delivered by Brigand Express to a brothel run by Lady Chun. Ai Nu is less than pleased with the circumstances, and even less so when she is pressed into service and repeatedly raped. So, what is a young woman supposed to do? "Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan" is a gloriously over-the-top movie mixing ribald kinkiness(there is a scary bit showing how gynecological exams might have been conducted in bygone days) with the odd bits of gratuitous violence. It is fun in a semi-serious way but it is too silly to have much of a politcal statement. And I definitely feel like I understand what one of Quentin Tarantino's inspirations might be...
