Saigon by Herself

6 years, 9 months ago at Nov 1 15:30

Whether the luxury and dissipation in the life at colony, or the inebriation of exotic amour boucing in the vernal breeze, even the nightmare of warfare which lingers on and on, Saigon is still as herself as ever.With the tumult accompanied by the dense moisture, it's a cradle gave birth to love and wish, sheding the departure and grief which all became a metropolis full of recollections.... read more

"8.5."

"8.5. Myönnän katsoneeni Rakastajan vain siksi, että olin kuullut Tony Leung Ka Fain peniksen näkyvän siinä. Penistä oli lopulta hyvin vähän. Tämä johtui rajauksesta ja asennosta eikä pituudesta. Itse leffa ei oikeastaan kiinnostanut yhtään minkään vertaa. Visuaalisesti Rakastaja näytti kivemmalta kuin Tony Leung Ka Fain penis. Kirja-adaptaationa se oli tusinatuubaa - elokuva siis."

"the protagonist is underage, and has sex several times with a guy who's obviously older than her. the scenes were kind of hard to watch for me. some even say that the girl was penetrated for real. watch it to find out why."

"1992 Real penetration in a sex scene between Jane March and Tony Leung Ka Fai; though this is not obvious without frame-by-frame scrutiny of the scene."


Lesley posted a review 6 years, 9 months ago

Saigon by Herself



Whether the luxury and dissipation in the life at colony, or the inebriation of exotic amour boucing in the vernal breeze, even the nightmare of warfare which lingers on and on, Saigon is still as herself as ever.With the tumult accompanied by the dense moisture, it's a cradle gave birth to love and wish, sheding the departure and grief which all became a metropolis full of recollections.

The Lover, just as the movie expressed, Saigon has become to an oriental romantic city in the western minds. Thereby for the past generations, the silent Mekong river also flew to be a lover's river; Saigon nearly can be the own to Marguerite Duras herself.

It's all about the evanescent and cursory Saigon, firing everyone's imagination.
