Movie Info

Klaus Kinski stars in this stylishly bizarre erotic drama as Sir Stephen, a decadent man of wealth living in Hong Kong in 1920. Sir Stephen persuades his wife O (Isabelle Illiers) to go to work in a brothel as a way to prove her love for him. As she is confronted by any number of perverse sexual possibilities, Sir Stephen carries on an affair with Natalie (Arielle Dombasle) and supports the political revolution simmering in the Pearl of the Orient. Les Fruits de la Passion was based on a novel by Pauline Reage (aka Dominique Aury), who also wrote the erotic classic Histoire d'O; the film was released in some territories under the title The Story of "O" Continued. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The avant-garde Japanese director, Shuji Terayama, who likes to marry Freud and Marx in a veil of surrealism, buries them both in this excessively solemn, exotic nonsense.

Little more than an excuse to merge mainstream filmmaking with light pornography, hoping to capitalize on the controversy and cult success of the original.

The first one wasn't bad. This was.
