Storyline

Beset by financial troubles, he has become desperate for money - so much so that he is unable to pay the alimony to his ex-wife (Kristal Tin). Despite his former spouse's bitterness, their daughter still clings onto her faith in him - and wishes to see him on TV once his new movie premieres. To is soon introduced to a potential Mainland Chinese investor, Tyrannosaurus (Ronald Cheng), by his buddy Lui Wing-shing (Simon Loui Yu-yeung). But Tyrannosaurus is not only the head of a Guangxi triad gang, he turns out to have very particular tastes in food and sex. Regardless, To is determined to woo this investor, even if it means giving into his every demands. Tyrannosaurus eventually tells them to cast his childhood idol Yum Yum Shaw (Susan Shaw) in a remake of a classic pornographic film. He even gives the film the title Confessions of Two Concubines. After receiving funding from ... Written by Golden Scene

The Cantonese bawdy comedy back again.
29 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This one is surprisingly lively as a product of the largely dormant Hong Kong film industry.

The makers of the success LOVE IN THE BUFF offer a low comedy version of their industry which includes sex with farm animals, a heroine promoting a hand job video game, gangster finance and the seventies skin-flic star Shaw Ying Ying back by popular demand, in her sixties.

It's pushed along briskly and they get value out of their small budget, with good craft aspects and likable players.

The piece is framed by a film school lecture session. The English subtitlers battle with some of the material.
