  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    At first glance another "Emmanuelle" copy that is hindered by it's fragmented storyline and a leading mannequin actress that participate in high-class near XXX scenes and oral sex before it surprises even the most critical eye with a supernatural avant-garde ending of epic porportions. Klaus Kinski's presence add to the fun of it all. One of the few erotic movies that surpass it's own genre.

  2. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Quelle étrangeté... (Ceci dit, avec Kinski, Terayama et Dombasle réunis, il fallait s'y attendre)

  3. humberto1988's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    El piano que es tocado en cada momento, me envuelve en tristeza "O"... [O]: Loca...¿Loca? Estoy loca, quiero estar loca. Sé que adora mi silencio, mis cadenas. [Nathali] Mira... ¡mira! Ves como me ama. [O]: ella dice: "ves como me ama", mientras él me está mirando a los ojos.

  4. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    If Red Letter Media ever did a Best of the Worst: Art Movie Edition this would be the perfect fit.

  5. Miguel Abad Manning's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    In the search for truth, O encounters her greatest fear: freedom. A disturbing story that reflects the unnerving abyss of uncertainty through a delicate venture into the dilemma of love, obsession and resignation.

  6. José Neves's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    PC. Anatole Dauman produced and certainly attempted to remake a new empire of the senses with another Japanese avant-garde filmmaker, Terayama, that has always been more essayistic and less narrative than Oshima. With Tatsuo Suzuki's cinematography and Henri Colpi's editing, this international luxury is less a pinku than a ridiculous soft porn like those that in 70s characterized many European "Z series" directors.

  7. fecalis's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Poétique et surréaliste,ce film ne délivre pas de message ,juste un délire sexué librement exprimé qui me semble exprimer une sexualité blasée.Les images sont belles et justement oniriques.

  8. Juan's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Buen cine. La narrativa es muy setentera, pero la exploración filosófica del deseo y la representación de una sexualidad BDSM es avanzada para su tiempo, y deja ver la influencia del poro-erotismo.

  9. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Une atmosphère relativement trouble (mais pas assez), une direction artistique plus poussée que chez Just Jaeckin (mais pas assez), une palette d'acteurs très intéressante (mas pas assez de pandas).

  10. captainfez's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Stored in a bowl of tedium, watched over by Kinski's eyeliner.

  11. Dewald's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

  12. Hasan Veseli's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    First and foremost for the sake of Shuji Terayama (probably the greatest Japanese artist to make films) casting Klaus Kinski and shooting in Hong Kong ...

  13. Benoit Baudinat's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Une abomination superbe. Kinski est à peine regardable.

  14. Harald K.'s rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Strictly aesthetical, strictly political: Terayama manages to keep the balance using a convincing cast, Kinski just being the focal point.

  15. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    What starts like a B-movie becomes something really interesting, surreal.

  16. Pegarange's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Very interesting stylistically and aesthetically, which makes up for the narrative weaknesses.

  17. EdieEmm's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Lurid, pulpy & intoxicating. An ill-fated bdsm love story set amid Sir S.’s louche colonial existence of profiteering & privilege in 20s Hong Kong, against a China in turmoil. A Cocteau-like, surreal, technicolour, Orientalist opium dream, set to dime-store novel narration, emphatic score, wall to wall mise-en-scene & so many off-beat scenarios it’s a food fight away from being a Pynchon subplot. Lots to it. A treat!

  18. eberhard's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    "And now, this paper, this contract, I return it to you. O, you earned your freedom. You are free. You may go wherever you wish. But if you so desire, you may remain here, O."

  19. Viola Valéry's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Nice atmosphere and beautiful womens, the only positive things of this film. A good subject ( the morbid relationship between Kinski and Isabelle illiers) unfortunately badly developed.

  20. Elisa Malo's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    A fairytale for adults. Beautiful dream which atmosphere is suddenly also a nightmare. A new favorite

  21. msmichel's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Wonderful trash disguised as high art that continues the 'story of o'. 'O' finds herself in a Hong Kong house of flowers (brothel) where she'll continue to debase herself for the pleasure of her lover. Add to that the various subplots of the other whores and the air of a Chinese rebellion and you have this glorious mess of a film that is never boring and often dryly humorous.

  22. Epinephrin's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    Half star for some moments of good cinematography and colours. And half star for "interesting" torture scenes of those (asian) girls. Couldn't watch it to the end because I got bored. This wasn't something to be called a film. Just some visual artistic experiment maybe. If you want asian visual experiments and cinematography, with more story in it go watch ANTIPORNO. It is great !

  23. CECE91's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    le visuel est intéressant, surtout quand il s'agit de dépeindre le corps de la femme-objet. Dans l'ensemble c'est plutôt décevant; machisme, sexisme, racisme, [sans oublier les vieilles idées romantiques sur l'amour, la dévotion et le sacrifice féminin ]sont les thèmes de ce film. C'est un bon matériel d'analyse, sans plus.

  24. Korial's rating of the film Fruits of Passion

    I felt quite drained out by the over-imposing soundtrack and the sudden scene cuts. However, something lurks beneath and I am sure this is one of those movies which take some time to digest. The sceneries are great, the plot obscure, the overall experience dissonant. I think it is a good surrealist movie as symbolically represents humanity without being too concerned and indulgent on symbols themselves.
