This is a comparison between the English Version and the German Version. Both are included on the German DVD released by Filmjuwelen.

The stranded American Mark Jason struggles along as an elementary teacher in Southeast-Asia. The only things that keep him above water are his girlfriend Nhan Lee and the occasional sip from the bottle. When he incidentally finds the a secret hideout of diamonds in his house, he starts dreaming about a better life. However, corrupt cops and other gangsters also try to get the diamonds.

"A Lotus for Miss Quon" is a pretty amusing thriller taking place in an exotic setting. Lang Jeffries plays the antihero who is mainly interested in his own fortune and shows no qualms while his girlfriend's father is being abused by the police. This role is a nice change to the typical heroes other movies portray.

The German DVD by Filmjuwelen includes two versions. The German Version is uncut, widescreen and solely includes the German audio. The English Version is included in an aweful Pan&Scan and misses out on a few minutes of plot.

Comparison of the image quality:

Unfortunately, the English version is included in a Pan&Scan fullscreen version, meaning that a lot of information is lost.
