The definition of what constitutes sin differs from culture to culture, but the notion of Sinful Nights (2004) including beds, naked broads, and unbridled copulation seems to be universal. This steamy and sensual offering from the Philippines plays with passions that are at home the world over and still profoundly local to the hothouse environment of lust and pursuit from which the film originates. Take any two lovers, man and woman. Will they be satisfied with the joy that has been allotted them? Will they stray and endanger the sacred bond for the sake of flashing excitement? Will their deep connection trigger the envy and rage of a heart that is left behind and broken? Why do people leap with such rashness into impetuous and perilous romances? Is it the heat? The humidity? The human condition?
