Description
One of the most significant and offbeat HK adult films, AN AMOROUS WOMAN OF TANG DYNASTY is a period softcore drama with a decidedly feminist perspective and sexual encounters that are always relevant to the story. Taoist priestess/poetess Yu Yuan-gi (Pat Ha Man-chik) possesses a yearning to experience aspects of life that go beyond the traditional parameters of her station. While associating with the upper echelon of society, she also carries on a torrid relationship with roving swordsman Tsui Pok-hau (Alex Man Chi-leung). Yuan-gi (a gifted scholar who chose to become a priestess, in order to be independent) and Pok-hau (a man who chose to be an assassin, rather than live a mundane life) are a seemingly ideal match but he eventually leaves her to resume his travels in the martial world. In the meantime, Yuan-gi earns the reputation among the townsfolk of being amoral because of the sexual relationship she carries on with her maid, Lu Chiao. Pok-hau returns but soon abandons her again, prompting Yuan-gi to take up with other men. However, when she discovers that Chiao has been impregnated by a man whose identity she refuses to divulge, Yuan-gi's actions lead to tragic consequences. Tom Poon Chun-wai (as a scholar attracted by Yuan-gi's gifts but repulsed by her decadence), Chang Kuo-chu (as a resolute swordmaker), Lam Hoi-ling, Donald Kong To, and Ku Feng also appear. Previously released on tape and laserdisc in dead center fullscreen, AMOROUS WOMAN receives a much better presentation in this anamorphic rendering, which does full justice to Ardy Lam Kwok-wah's splendid cinematography. The image is spotless throughout, detail is excellent, and hues are vibrant. The English subtitles are very well done but have been synced to the Mandarin track, making it the preferable version for Westerners. The standard Celestial extras are on hand (video promo spots, bios/filmographies, galleries).
