Synopsis / Plot:
One of the most controversial and best-directed films in the history of Hong Kong erotic cinema, these Intimate Confessions shocked avid audiences in 1972, and even today exerts a raw power. Lily Ho, in her most daring role, plays an aristocratic maiden abducted and sold to the Four Seasons Brothel where she is caught in a web of sex, murder, and intrigue in both the bordello and the imperial court. (IVL).

Encoding details: (for personal record)
-Now with PSNR and SSIM values. I can't find anything on the net on what numbers would be good. Someone may enlighten me if you know something.
-Since the encoded video turned out so small I added the original 5.1 AC3 audio and coincidentally it became roughly 700mb in total xD
-The source DVD9 is extremely blurry (likely the reason for the small encoding size).

- I can't see the subtitles/why is there no extra subtitle file?
+ The subs are embedded in the mkv-container. If you can't see them this picture may help you. Or try another player.

- I can't open the video/the screen is black/the audio is asynchronous.
+ Try another player (VLC, KMP, MPC Homecinema > WMP) / install ffdshow tryouts / buy a newer computer.

- My download won't start??????
+ Check your status/rank in your profile. You may have been guested/banned or you have a waiting time imposed on new torrents because you are a leecher (360 hours wait time) or a new user (24 hours wait time).

- There are no seeders, what should I do?
+ View the snatcher history (click where it says "Downloaded: XX times" ) and send them a PM kindly asking them to re-seed.

- I need help...
+ Read the Rules first. Then use the forums search function or ask in the IRC channel (web applet).

- I don't have an account and I can't register?????
+ Registrations may be closed. Come back later and check if reg is open again. Don't ask anyone about registration or invites. Forum access does not enable you to download. You need a separate tracker account.

Thanks to yanbo for the DVD9.

Hey this is kewl! This movie sounds like it could be 'part 1 or 2' of [SB] Lust for Love of a Chinese Courtesan (link below),  starring the former wife of Chow Yun Fat, the beautiful Candice Yu On-on! The characters have the same names except this film was made 12 yrs earlier. I watched the newer one like 4x's already, it was so-so goodlaugh.gif TYVM! I know this one should be jus as erotic & interesting

These are the rules for those who obviously don't read them nor do they understand them.

This is not a dupe.

Looks like it... didn't have it in my thread though for some reason. Last comment also says it would be cut off at the end? Anyway I consider this rip superior since A) it has AC3 5.1 which the Avi has not and B) it was encoded from a DVD9 (while the Avi might have been from a DVD5 (no way to confirm, but it's likely)).

Is this a Dupe?
