Sex & Zen

Classic Hong Kong Cat III eroticism that still manages to befuddle the sensibilities years after it was first released. Mixing softcore sex scenes with costume drama, this example of libertine film making is a great example of a genre that flourished in the Far East for a while until the Chinese government cracked down on it's more explicit facets.

Sex & Zen is the everyday story of a newly married man who goes on a journey to sleep with other men's wives. He runs into The Flying Thief, who agrees to help him find potential women, but only if he can get a bigger the size of a horse!

The man has a surgeon graft on a new, huge unit and then he's ready to roll. Now, he must use all his guile to sleep with as many women as possible while avoiding their furious husbands and not falling foul of treacherous women.

A bizarre concoction that mixes the softcore fumbles with off key humour, Kung Fu motifs and a large amount of billlowing fabric, Sex & Zen is a curious exercise in genre splicing.

Cat III is the Hong Kong version of an X certificate and runs the gamut from weird pornography to the truly sick making likes of Bun Man. It's an interesting reflection of differing attitudes toward extremes in filmmaking in other cultures that Anthony Wong, the star of Bun Man, won the countries equivalent of a best actor Oscar for his portrayal of the psychotic chef in that movie. I doubt the members of the Oscar committee would see fit to award a performance that involves intimately assaulting a female cast member with a handful of chop sticks or brutally slaying a group of children with such a high honour.
