Gritty view of prostitution in Hong Kong
11 April 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This film attempts to show a more realistic view of prostitution in Hong Kong and, by and large, it succeeds. Prostitution is not glamorized by any means, with the prostitutes acting bored while servicing clients and the johns appearing pathetic.

The documentary style of the film suits its subject, and it has a great deal of social importance. Fans of Hong Kong action films may not like its slower pace, but this movie does a good job of showing a different side of Hong Kong.
