Vulgaria Synopsis

To (Chapman To Man-chak), a long-time film producer, has yet to produce anything resembling a hit. 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...

The title couldn't be more appropriate! Vulgaria is so vulgar and so generous in using the f word that you'd choke with laughter! Surprisingly enjoyed this film by Ho-Cheung which gives a peek (and also a poke)  on the local film industry by way of a producer named To ( Chapman To Man-chak) looking for that one big break. A friend leads him to triad gang leader Tyrannosaurus who agrees to a deal, but first he must get intimate with a mule! (tsk tsk). Quite bawdy, offensive and with sexual innuendos but also wickedly funny as only Ho-Cheung can pull off!  If you're into films with adult material but intellectually challenging then this should  be on your watch list.

Can't suppress my laughter with this one!  Totally and unconventionally hilarious, Pang Ho-Cheung scores another socially-conscious yet entertaining film! The story revolves around To Wai Chen (portrayed by Chapman To)  a struggling film producer who, in his quest for financing  gets introduced to a triad gang leader Tyrannosaurus (portrayed by Ronald Cheng).  There are many hilarious scenes in this film but what really cracked me up was the first scene, where Chen was seen talking before students, comparing a film producer to...of all things, pubic hair! Well, that's just for starters! Better check out this film and see for yourself why this is one of the box-office hits in Hongkong cinemas for 2012!

  • This was an interesting expose into what it takes to get a film made, that wasn't always funny, but certainly weird enough to warrant a viewing.
