"The Reincarnation of Golden
Directed by Clara Law
Joi Wong stars as the Golden
Lotus in this feminist reworking of an erotic 12th century Chinese novel.
Lotus has the misfortune of her beauty, and becomes the luckless prey of
various abusive men. Through carefully threaded flashbacks to the Sung
Dynasty, she comes to the realization that she is the reincarnation of the
"number one" courtesan of ancient China. Mandarin with English
subtitles. 99 minutes.
