"Fresh meat, Fresh meat, get your T-bones, steaks! Good quality red meat!" Wish I were heckling outside a butcher's shop! It would have been far more entertaining.

There are movies and then there are cans of reels like these, made for the purpose of titillating the sexually frustrated. The very name of this flick, Red Meat (are they serious?), predicts disaster. An all-out semi-porn flick, set in the Philippine Islands. (And if you came here expecting this to be the Lara Flynn Boyle film, sorry!)

Su Li (Tetchie Agbajali), a poor peasant Philippine girl, meets Tom Hunter (Mak Thavier), a big-time photographer from New York who specializes in nudes. He's shipwrecked and ends up in Li's village. Smitten by her charms, he convinces her to come to Manila where he promises to make her famous.

No, Tom's not a total crook, that's where there is a minor twist. He does live up to his promise, and makes her Miss Manila. He also convinces her to pose for him and to make love to him (what else was the movie made for?). Her pictures get published and she incurs the wrath of her village folk who threaten to kill her. A couple of harmless attempts are made for the sole purpose of exposing Tetchie's body to the audience (okay, it's not bad, if that's the opinion you are seeking).

All the glitter and glamor make Li understand that she is basically a down to the earth person. Unfortunately she is in love with Tom and therefore doesn't leave Manila. But Tom's womanizing brings Li to her senses and she returns home.

This is not a movie you'd go to to check out if it was a challenge to make. It does cater to the basic instincts, as the promos scream.
