Judy Ongg in The Pillow Book

The Pillow Book

1997 UR

A bizarre mix of carnality and calligraphy, The Pillow Book is a lush foray into the aphrodisiacal pleasures of the flesh and mind. A woman (Vivian Wu) melds her love of life and literature in an unusual fashion -- by seeking a lover who will write on her skin. She eventually leaves her husband for a British man (Ewan McGregor) who will satisfy her needs, but her father's publisher stands in their way. Peter Greenaway directs.
