非分熟女 (The Lady Improper) (Blu-ray release 2019-7-25) is a Hong Kong fictional drama inspired by a real life case of a woman who remained to be a virgin for several years after marriage. Directed by a female director, this movie intends to portray a woman freeing from sexual oppression and achieving independence, symbolized by the metamorphosis of a butterfly.
The result, however, is not convincing because there are several unrealistic aspects in the screenplay. In particular, the issue of not being able to have sex after marriage forms the basis of the movie, but it is resolved without any difficulty, made little sense, and therefore undermined its own foundation. Other than the lead actor, the secondary love interest and all other potential ones are abnormal men. It is marginally comedic but actually distracts from the main theme. The part of the story that deals with the father-daughter relationship is better, but that is not the point of the movie.
