Recensies

Teddy Girls bursts with creative energies: flashbacks are staged as soap operas on TV; funerals unfold on stark soundstages; luxury homes are vast wastelands scattered with mod furniture; and Siao’s gang of teddy girls are ready to brawl, stab a punk, or wrap a chain around their fists and start thrashing at the drop of a hat.

The film may be the purest expression of Lung Kong’s balance of exploitation’s vulgar vitality—it could be a distant relation of Jack Hill’s Switchblade Sisters (1975)—with a compassion founded in the Catholic tradition of social responsibility and charity.

In one slyly surreal scene, Josephine and her fellow inmates watch a love scene on TV, and the image almost imperceptibly transitions to Josephine’s mother making love to a new husband…Not long after, Josephine receives news of her biological father’s death, and her emotional desolation is echoed by the hollowness of the family’s stylish upper-middle-class home, which [DP] Chiu Hung shoots with exaggerated angles that make Josephine look as if she might be swallowed up by the furniture.
