YesAsia Editorial Description

The movie everyone's talking about finally comes to Blu-ray!

Billed as "the world's first 3D erotic film", Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is arguably one of, if not the most anticipated Chinese film of the year, generating an unprecedented level of curiosity among adult film aficionados worldwide. The Category-III Hong Kong production is basically a remake of the 1991 big-screen adaptation of the classical Chinese erotica The Carnal Prayer Mat. Filmed with the latest 3D technology, the highly anticipated update from the original's producer Stephen Shiu seeks to deliver a sensual cinematic experience like never before, and its humongous success at the box office is expected to usher in a new wave of softcore entertainment at the multiplexes.

Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy features a great deal of spicy sex scenes and titillating full-frontal nudity courtesy of Mainland seductress Lan Yan, sexy Hong Kong starlet Vonnie Lui, and Japanese adult video idols Hara Saori and Suo Yukiko. The juicy costume drama's hero and villain are played by Hayama Hiro (Break Up Club) and character actor Tony Ho, respectively, and through their sexual exploits the film serves up a campy, violent, and orgiastic adventure that ultimately affirms the value of true love.

Set in Ming-dynasty China, the film follows young scholar Wei Yangsheng (Hayama Hiro) as he falls for beautiful maiden Tie Yuxiang (Lan Yan) at first sight. Much in love as they are, their married life isn't all that, and soon the sexually frustrated Wei is invited as a guest to Prince Ning's (Tony Ho) "Pavilion of Extreme Ecstasy", where a whole harem of naked nymphs are kept to satisfy men's wildest fantasies. Wei begins to lose himself in lustful pursuits, and at the referral of the "Elder of Bliss" (Vonnie Lui), he even goes to the extreme of getting a donkey organ transplant to enhance his tiny manhood. There is an inconvenient side effect: the lecherous scholar becomes so indulged in carnal pleasure that he fails to see the deadly trap set up for him...

This Blu-ray contains the Director's Cut (15 minutes longer than the theatrical version) in both 3D and 2D. It also comes with 23 minutes of special features (2D) including commentaries, trailers, and several making-of featurettes.

As a conceited scholar of the Ming Dynasty, Wei Yangsheng believes one should pursue the ultimate sexual pleasure in life. Wei falls in love with the Taoist priest's daughter and get married. However, their sexual life is not satisfactory. One day, Wei becomes a guest of honour of Prince of Ning and is escorted to the Pavilion of Ultimate Bliss, where men and women live a life of wild orgies. The Prince of Ning has two stunners, coitus expert Reizhu and withdrawn sadist Dongmei. With Ning's permission, Wei Yangsheng enjoys promiscuous sex with them day and night. Yet his micro-penis soon makes him feel inferior. He later encounters The Elder of Ultimate Bliss, a greybeard with the appearance of a beautiful woman who keeps his youth-look by accumulating the Zen of yin yang. Under his guidance. Wei not only undergoes a dick-swap operation for a donkey's penis, but also acquires the ultimate sexual skills. Since then he arbitrarily pursues pleasure. His loving wife Yuxiang waits tranquilly at home for his return. Under the pressure of her father, heartbroken Yuxiang adamantly divorces Wei. Having been abandoned by Yuxian, Wei aggravates his licentious lifestyle. What seems to be adventitious is actually a deadly snare....

Professional Review of "Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy (Blu-ray) (2D + 3D Director's Cut) (Hong Kong Version)"

September 19, 2011

Given the current popularity of 3D technology, it was always inevitable that sooner or later someone would use it for full on exploitation cinema - and so it's hats off to Hong Kong for getting there first, with Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, proudly branded as being the world's first 3D erotic film. The marketing tactic has certainly been a hit, not only propelling it to great success at the Chinese box office, but also whipping up hype around the globe and marking it as one of the very few Category III rated local productions to win an international theatrical release. Directed by Christopher Sun, the film is essentially a remake of the 1991 original, with producer Stephen Shiu back on board for another adaptation of the Chinese Qing Dynasty erotic classic The Carnal Prayer Mat. The film features a pan-Asian cast giving their all in the name of art, including Mainland actress Lan Yan, Vonnie Lui (Chase our Love) and Tony Ho (Revenge: A Love Story) from Hong Kong, and Hayama Hiro (Break Up Club) plus AV idols Hara Saori and Suo Yukiko from Japan.

The plot plays fairly close to the original, with Hayama Hiro as upright young scholar Wei Yangsheng, who falls in love with and marries the equally decent Tie Yuxiang (Lan Yan). Sadly, he turns out to be somewhat lacking when it comes to his performances in the bedroom, mainly due to his unfortunately small manhood. Nevertheless, while investigating the villainous Prince Ning's (Tony Ho) "Pavilion of Extreme Ecstasy," he finds himself being drawn into a world of wild sexual pleasures. After a meeting with the Elder of Bliss (Vonnie Lui), he decides to have a donkey penis transplanted in place of his own, and uses his newfound virility to make the most of his basest desires. Unfortunately for the scholar, Prince Ning has his own plans for him and his wife, and he soon discovers that his lustful ways have their own shocking price.

Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is a film which really does deliver pretty much everything its lurid ad campaign promises. Christopher Sun and Stephen Shiu certainly serve up a non stop avalanche of carnal action, with most of the female and male cast naked for a high percentage of the running time, often going for full on frontal nudity. The sex scenes come thick and fast and are as explicit as would be expected given the Category III rating, and cover an imaginatively wide range of positions and situations. The good looking stars really do give their all, and the film definitely packs in enough adult entertainment to mark it as being one for the more open minded of viewers.

Oddly, although the sex sequences are generally well handled, the film never seems to be aiming for any real sensuality, mainly since it also packs in a great deal of far out and wacky moments at the same time. Indeed, it does get spectacularly gross and tasteless in places, with some pretty extreme gags, most notably during an extended gag sequence involving the attempted penis transplant. Similarly, a fair few of the couplings are clearly played for humour or weirdness, including a crazed flying sex scene and pretty much every shot which involves the bizarre Elder of Bliss, a scheming, all powerful hermaphrodite. Thankfully, the film is very funny, at least for those untroubled by notions of good taste, and whilst the comedy does kind of undermine it being taken seriously as a piece of erotica, it certainly makes it all the more enjoyable and boisterously tacky and ensures that despite a running time of over 2 hours in Director's Cut form, it ensures that things never get dull.

Perhaps more likely to startle some viewers is the film's shifting tone, which like many similarly themed Category III outings from the heyday of the genre switches between jolly romping and genuinely nasty violence. This is very apparent during the last hour or so, which sees much of the sex turn disturbingly rough, and throws in a series of gruesome rape and torture scenes. The film as a whole does have moments of quite shocking misogyny and nihilism sprinkled throughout, and this may prove off-putting for some, at times requiring quite a strong constitution to stomach.

Another surprise is just how good the film looks - far from being a cheap piece of soft pornography, it boasts gorgeous production values which are comparable to those of other more respectable affairs. The sets are amusingly designed and even occasionally impressive, and the costumes are pleasingly lavish - at least when the cast are wearing them. Although obviously on the small screen the 3D doesn't count for so an alluring gimmick, even in its 2D version the film still at least makes for some laughs, with a staggering number and variety of objects being thrown at the screen, including a truly memorable scene involving the flying severed appendage of a horse, which surely marks the best cinematic use to date of the technology. Aside from some shoddy computer blood during the martial arts heavy final act, most of the CGI work is pretty decent, and on the whole adds to the overall sense of decadent fun.

Although it's easy enough to dismiss Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy as a pretty cynical outing based around a clever marketing campaign, the film definitely never short changes its audience, and packs in more than enough sex and silliness to entertain fans or the curious. On a par with other recent genre productions like The Forbidden Legend: Sex & Chopsticks, the film is very much deserving of its success and cult status, and as much as anything it's great to see a big budget Category III romp doing so well both at home and indeed around the world.
