Les fruits de la passion Reviews:

First I need to tell that this movie is not a porn film nor it is trash. If you expect an erotic film, you will be disappointed, although there are some sexual scenes. The text of the DVD sleeve (I own the Anchor Bay version) awakens wrong expectations for this film and includes false notification about the story. Instead, I found its photography a very pretty artwork. It is made with a high sense for colors, nice images, perfectionism in feature and a beauty in its pictures that is found rarely in newer films in the western world. Maybe this is one reason why it may bore some folks with a more speedy expectation for movies then it is shown in this slowly developing story. The exotic environment of the storyline is a brothel in Hongkong, 1920, where "O", a French girl, surrenders fully to Mr. Steven (Klaus Kinski), desperately hoping to reach his heart.If this was an American movie, it would have surely a satisfied end - but it is an eastern and sad storyline of an unfulfilled love. I search it worth to watch it more than once to play its artwork and to understand its deep symbolism. It is not an simple film, especially for those used to watch Hollywood-productions only. Be prepared to watch it consciously and with full attention, otherwise you might not like it. I highly suggest it for folks with a sense for somehow old-fashioned esthetics, art, eastern culture, pretty images, and, of course, it is a must-see for all the fanatics of the best German actor, Klaus Kinski.


This will not be a positive experience for everyone. Few things would be offputting. Most would be offended that it is based on a ebook with trivial sensibilities. There is explicit sex. The nature of the thing slips often into visual symbolism. Many languages are spoken. Some of the text is sophomoric. Obsession, perversion, sexual quest, caste and political struggle are mixed up with no apparent coherence. Advertised as erotic, it is anything but.And yet. It is deliciously placed between Breilliat and Resnais and is better than most from them. If you watch a lot of films and deeply, like I do, the better ones form a sort of tapestry that reinforce every other. Two of my "must-see" movies are "Pillow Book" and "Fitzcarraldo," which this lean up against. Not of the same caliber of course, but there's a resonance.There are some marvelous experiences here. For instance, the young woman is newly established in her sparse cell at the brothel. She has place on the bottom of her dress and stands at the night window, pining for Kinski (who is with other lover). Across the screen on the wall is her shadow, a lovely, lonely pose, breasts alert. She moves away from the window in impatience. The shadow remains unmoved.Another: flashback to O as a girl, imprisoned by her father in a chalk square while he walks away and a clown rolls a flaming hoop about. The receding boy turns into Kinski. Flash forward to the prostituted O, sewing the torn image of Kinski, just before she is placed in a flying swan device to be sodomized by an aging client.Another prostitute in the brothel is an aging actress. To receive her to "perform," they set up a camera to pretend they are shooting, "Sunset Blvd." wise. We see this a couple times, then it shifts from the pretend film to a (presumed) past, true movie. This raises an trouble that leads to her suicide in the fashion of Ophelia. Her body in the pond is lifted by a rising piano.The storyline (the parts that don't matter to me) is influenced by Kinski, partly autobiographical and right before we see the same hero (in a related white suit) in "Fitzcarraldo." The madness matters.Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.


I first saw this movie by possibility when I was visiting my uncle in Arizona about 3 and 1/2 years ago. The VHS print was a tiny faded looking, but I was very haunted by what I had watched. Did it all create sense? Well, honestly, no it didn't. However, this is a movie that requires more than one viewing to understand all of its aspects. The beautifully tragic score haunted me and the bizarre photos made quiet an impression.Well, when I found out that Anchor Bay had released this oddity on DVD, I picked it up immediately. I was very satisfied by the transfer, though I felt the extras rather lacking. Though the movie concerns the "O" and Sir Stephen characters, it really has nothing to do with Pauline Reage's original novel or the 1974 movie The Storyline of O. However, the movie does pay attention to artistic feature and symbolism of an almost mystic kind. "O" decides to prostitute herself for Sir Stephen in violent 1920s Hong Kong. Her point is to prove her unending devotion and love for her master through giving her body to another men. Naturally, Sir Stephen enjoys watching her during her unpleasant sexual escapades and even finds himself a mistress. However, the tables are turned when "O" now finds a type of love with a young male admirer. Suddenly, Sir Stephen feels the threat...I feel that the deep meaning behind the movie (including the tragic score and artistic direction) really create this movie a classic. The viewer is introduced not only to the lives and pasts of "O"'s fellow brothel mates, but the turmoil of 1920s Hong Kong is also explored. Like the political setting, the prostitutes all search themselves in need of belonging. No one is satisfied in the film, even if they trust that they are. (However, "O" does search a sense of happiness with her young admirer). One prostitute tearfully remembers how her father used to act like a dog when she was drunk, naturally leading to a fetish for having her customers act like a dog. Other older prostitute is obsessed with her past as an actress. She cannot allow that vision go. She treats her clients as co-stars and even swears she hears a piano in the river. As for "O", she has a flashback about her father leaving her in a chalk circle. When he leaves, she feels a sense of abandonment. Of course, in that same flashback Kinski suddenly becomes her father. I was very, very disturbed by this image. I truly felt for "O" at this mission in the film. She hardly ever smiles and this stage really explains why. Her fear of abandonment is so nice that she sees Sir Stephen as her father and caters to his each obscene demand in hopes of proving her love. Other curious aspect of the movie is the young kid (that ages at the end) that sells fortune in a box. It is a very random character, but somehow it just adds to the sense of loss and emptiness in the film. At one point, the director even uses painted cardboard figures to represent people. Now, if that isn't symbolism for you! (Laugh) All in all, I really love this film. I feel that it is a very deep and somewhat moving experience. It has erotic scenes, but the scenes aren't really meant to arouse. Like the lives of the characters, the sex acts are empty. They are motions, but lack feeling and tenderness. (Once again, the only tender stage is between "O" and the young man). "O" believes she is in love and that lowering herself is an honor, however, she finds in the end that she has choices. She too can be her own person and pursue her own happiness, however, she also has the option to stay in that circle that her father drew. The director leaves a lot of unanswered questions, however, some things don't need answers. The viewer will create the judgment that works for them. I gotta tell that I want a unique edition of this DVD would be released that had director commentary. I think it would be fascinating to hear his opinion of the movie and its message years later. It is a shame that the soundtrack was never released. This movie has a truly haunting and heart breaking score. There is something about the lingering vocals that send a chill up my spine. I can truly feel the sense of loneliness in the movie by just listening to the music.
