Storyline

A documentarian funds a NYC doorman's Asian mail order bride in exchange for the right to film the experience. But when Lichi arrives in America, she finds herself married to a recluse with a penchant for sadistic sexual role-playing. Objectivity flies out the window when she and the filmmaker become involved. Twists and turns are plentiful in this tragi-comic love triangle where all is not what it seems. Written by Hypnotic

Great Movie
15 May 2006 | by rivendell1See all my reviews

I was completely fooled by this. I really thought it was a Documentary. I must admit when Litchi started screaming she wanted a baby and the part where the co-director's father secreted her off to a hotel room I did wonder if it was all a put-on. Just brilliant in sustaining the illusion of reality storytelling. Knowing in advance it's all a mockumentary does ruin it a bit but not knowing makes this an amazing piece of film making to watch unfold. Apparently this was all scripted but it comes across as completely spontaneous. I'd certainly keep an eye on this film maker in the future. He has an edge to him that is lacking in a lot of more mainstream Hollywood directors.
