Cannes Film Festival – Directors’ Fortnight
Based partly on the sequel of «The story of O» and set largely in a 1920s Hong Kong whorehouse, this is exotic erotica on the themes of bondage, servitude, devotion and mastery. An aristocratic voyeur and would-be puppet master dabble disastrously in the power games of prostitution and colonial politics.
