Spider Lilies...



I came across this film from Taiwan called "Spider Lilies" a few days ago. (A couple of days later, this chick mentioned it to me too...so thanks for lookin' out!)

In my lesbian research, I've found that most reviews of the movie--which was released this year--are pretty bad. Lots of promise, they say...but just doesn't deliver. So I figured I'd give you what are probably the best of the movie right here: the trailer and the love scene. That's usually true of lots of movies, now that I think of it. Hmmm...

In this clip, you'll notice that lesbians are found in their natural habitat: on top of each other. Enjoy...oh and for those of you suspecting, yes it is me who is singing this little diddy. I think I did a pretty good job of mastering the accent, right? I'm hooked on phonetics. I wanted my vocal performance to be delicate and pronounced, like a lily dancing in a pond. How do you think I did?:


And here's the trailer...that makes it look like a pretty rad movie. Perhaps it really is and all 20 critics were wrong? We should give it a chance:

The song is sad... Beautiful, but sad... Has the undertheme of gazing upon such beauty for now, but not wanting to think of when I must leave you... *sob* I really need to see both.

Btw, random thing, when the girl said "hold me," technically the translation is good. But a more accurate one is, "encircle me/surround me with yourself" etc. Just thought that was a little more romantic.

Thanks for the lesbians lesbians!

bianka said...

now, i must admit that i have a big thing for asian girls. and when i went to china for a month, you would not believe how many lesbians there are, and how hot they all are.

and in the end, i could watch this movie over and over. i can't even speak chinese. but they are both cute as.

Saving Face is one of my FAVOURITE movie<33333

sophia said...

OH!
I forgot to mention..
I've no idea why they translated it to "Spider Lilies"...the title of the movie actually says "Tattoo"...But I guess for a more artistic approach they had to come up with something like that..
HAhahahaa..

I loved this movie. Yea okay the girls where hot, but really it was a pretty deep story. A little depressing too actually. Overall defiantly worth watching and I wouldn't mind owning it too.
