Depressing H.K. Omnibus dealing with prostitution
7 October 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Call Girls 1988 a.k.a Girls with no Tomorrow (1988) is an omnibus of the lives of five different prostitutes. Their lives are chronicled throughout this movie. The film features two of Hong Kong's hottest star, one future and one rising (Maggie Cheung and Carrie Ng). Maggie Cheung plays a high class call girl whilst Christine Ng is on the lower end of the business. No matter what end of the spectrum these girls belong to, their lives are all the same, empty, shallow and depressing. One scene in this movie really> shocked me. It involved a confrontation between a battered Call girl and her Pimp/Boyfriend , a pair of shears and a toilet bowl (You have to watch what transpired!).

Highly Recommended, Maggie Cheung is a brilliant actress, she can make any type of material watchable. She and Christine look strange all dolled up in poofy 80's hair and make-up.
