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.
