Peeping, The
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Marco Mak.


Packed wall to wall with sex, held together by a plot full of double crosses, THE PEEPING would have made a great porno. But although there is a lot of nudity, and a lot of sex, the camera is set so carefully for each shot that none of the actors ever reveal any of their 'points.' You really start to marvel at the skill with which each nipple is carefully covered -- a hand here, a potted plant there, a tight hug, a low camera angle. The sexual gymnastics onscreen are matched by technical gymnastics to keep everyone not quite fully exposed. At least there are some erotic scenes, something that Category III movies rarely have. The plot? Daniel Wu is a private detective hired by Grace Lam, to spy on a Taiwanese congresswoman (Theresa Mak), and falls in love with her after watching her have sex with a variety of people. Based on a real life scandal.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
