it's about Love, it's not about sex or lust

Story of this movie is about Love, it's not about sex or lust (in contrary of other movies such Lolitta). A Chinese gentleman who fall in love with a young French girl who has a poor family whom are looking only for money and getting back to the rich and aristocratic French life! (specially her mother and older brother). Chinese generous man has no job and he does nothing but loving the girl. In the movie we will see another French girl who is closed friend of the main girl (Jane March, we don't know her name in the movie), her dream and wish is to become a prostitute!, which shows us prostitution minds of French girls in compare of honest and pure love from a Chinese gentleman.

From my view, the main point of this movie is about these meanings, not about sex. I think movie tries to show us different meanings of what we think and we believes about societies, people and cultures. When we see a gentleman can not marry a French woman, because he is a Chinese!. Maybe that's why the main characters of the movie has not any name! so, it can be anyone! you, me!

Movie has many nice parts, for example: 1- when older brother is beating his sister, the younger brother who has gun, never try to stop him, but he plays piano! 2- when older brother and mother they see Chinese man's money. 3- When mother asks her daughter if she slept with Chinese man for money!

good looking exotic erotica

In French colonial Indochina, a French girl (Jane March) has two older brothers, Pierre and Paul. Pierre is their mother's favorite despite being a thief and a bully. They're in fear of him. She is repatriating him to France after stealing from an opium den. The family is running out of money for him to steal. On a Mekong river crossing, the girl meets a rich jobless globetrotting playboy Chinaman (Tony Ka Fai Leung). She tells him that she's 17 despite being only 15 and a half. He gives her a ride to her boarding school and starts an erotic affair. Her friend Helene Lagonelle is the only other white girl in the school.

This is a solid example of the sub-genre of exotic erotica. It's got beautiful naked people but it's not quite overt softcore porn. It's more cinematic than the classic Emmanuelle or other pornographic B-movies. The exotic locations look beautiful. It is visually stunning. The acting is competent. These are actual actors. On the other hand, the story is paper thin. The plot isn't much to talk about but that may be besides the point.

Ehhhhh things I would change....

I thought it was an alright movie but I didn't quite like the fact, Jane March as the young girl wasn't that bothered to have sex with the Chinaman. She seemed to be quite hesitant and not at all confident for a young actress. I know she was nearly 18 at the time but for god sakes, they should've gotten a better actress that would be confident in doing the scenes with Tony Ka Fai Leung. I also didn't like the fact her character didn't have the same feelings for the guy because this really is meant to be a romance movie. Instead she just doesn't want to fall in love with him. It's really disappointing, I expected that she would say " I love you" back a lot but she just didn't.

The sex scene's were very good and realistic. I have to say, it was an alright movie but it did let me down with a couple of things that needed to happen throughout!
