LES NUITS ROUGES DU BOURREAU DE JADE

by Julien Carbon, Laurent Courtiaud

synopsis

Carrie is obsessed with the punishments meted out by the first Chinese emperor's Jade Executioner. He tortured his victims by using formidable claws and a poison that provoked ecstatic and mortal pleasure. With the complicity of her lover, she explores extraordinary sadistic perversions and dreams of bringing the Jade Executioner's legend back to life by getting her hands on the evil poison. Catherine, a Frenchwoman, then appears on the scene. She is wanted by Interpol and unbeknownst to her, has the precious elixir in her possession, hidden in an antique that she is determined to dispose of. Fate brings them together through the intervention of Sandrine, an art trafficker, while the hot object also arouses the lust of a Taiwanese gangster, Mr. Ko.
