Sing’s last two films were flops, but he is given the helm on a Category III sex film and has to cope with a leading lady who won’t do nude scenes, Triad backers, and a crumbling relationship with his girlfriend.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
funny, dark, ridiculous... a parody of the hk film industry that turns into more of a feel-good comedy towards the end. i put off watching this bc i couldn't bear to see leslie play a self-loathing failed director, but ofc he pulled it off (a little too) well. his scenes w karen mok pretty much made this movie for me; shu qi also gives a short monologue that almost made me cry. plus there's a jab at wong kar-wai!
