The Mistress (1999) Crystal Kwok's Controversial CAT III film
The Mistress (1999) Crystal Kwok\'s Controversial CAT III film

Actress Crystal Kwok directs Category III Scorcher

Original Chinese title MAI SAT SUM LAM

director: Crystal Kwok
starring: Vicky Cheng Hsiao-Hsuan Roy Lui Jacqueline Peng

Actress-turned-director Crystal Kwok chooses a highly erotic tale for her debut feature. Produced outside the conventional entertainment system - during a period when the HK studios were steering clear of controversial material in the wake of the Chinese takeover - this film centers on Alexi, a teacher who serves as the English tutor to Michelle, the new mistress of wealthy businessman Henry. Initially, Alexi despises the overtly brazen sexual relationship, believing it is based entirely on money and - as such - is demeaning to women. Gradually a friendship forms between Alexi and Henry. Soon, she is drawn into their erotic world and begins to understand the intimate relationship between sex and power. Alexi falls under henry's allure and, after being seduced, she takes Michelle's place as the mistress with torrid yet disastrous results.

Crystal Kwok was born in San Francisco in 1966 where she spent her first 20 years. While in college, she won a beauty contest with a 'Trip to Hong Kong' as first prize. Shortly after her arrival in HK, Golden Harvest signed Crystal to a contract and cast her as Jackie Chan's assistant in Dragons Forever. Crystal was mostly eye-candy for a number of popular films, including POLICE STORY 2, EXPLOSIVE CITY, DOCTOR VAMPIRE. But nothing in her 20 year career gave any indication that an erotic scorcher like THE MISTRESS was brewing under the surface.

A Hong Kong film with English subtitles; widescreen format, totally uncut version (93 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include trailers.
