Donkey Love And Sexy Nurses In Pang Ho-Cheung's Aptly Titled VULGARIA
Hong Kong's reigning enfant terrible, the prolific and diverse Pang Ho-Cheung will debut his latest feature - Vulgaria - at the upcoming Hong Kong International Film Festival. Pang has never had any issues with pushing boundaries and it appears clear that this dark comedy will do exactly that.

Vulgaria is a black comedy that tells the story of Hong Kong filmmaker To Wai-Cheung's outrageous experience in trying to get his new film made through the bitterness and joys of the Hong Kong film industry.   

To (Chapman To Man-chak), a long time film producer, has yet to produce anything that would gain himself any fame or fortune. On top of a financial crisis, he couldn't find anyone to finance his new film and he is even unable to pay for the alimony for his ex-wife (Kristal Tin). Even though his ex-wife despises him, his daughter still has faith in him and wishes to see him on TV on his new movie's premiere night.

Looking for a chance to make a new film, To's buddy Lui Wing-shing (Simon Lui Yu-yeung) introduces him to a mainland Chinese investor, Tyrannosaurus (Ronald Cheng), who not only is the head of a Guangxi triad, but also has peculiar tastes for food and sex. In order to seize this opportunity, To and Lui must follow their investor's every demand. Tyrannosaurus eventually tells them to cast his childhood adult-movie idol, Susan Shaw (Siu Yam-Yam), in a remake of a classic pornographic film, and he even gives the film its title, Darling, I Want It Too.

After receiving funding from Tyrannosaurus, To then successfully casts Shaw to act in Darling, I Want It Too, with pseudo-model Tsui Ka-yan (Dada Chan), who's famous for her popping candy oral sex skill, to be Shaw's body double. He also casts Ip Shan-ho (Ip Shan-ho), who is currently suffering from "exploding-body-phobia" after starring in his last erotic film, to be the lead actor.

Things start to go awry when director Blackie Tak (Matt Chow) makes unreasonable changes on the original script, which sends the production seriously over budget. As bizarre as it could go, Tyrannosaurus requests to insert a character to be played by his girlfriend, which is a mule! Craziness ensues and everything goes out of control...

As a last attempt to save and promote the film, and also to fulfil his daughter's wish, To plans to unveil all the weird, outrageous and vulgar practices that went into the whole process of making Darling, I Want It Too!
Twitch has received a dozen stills from the upcoming film which you can find in the gallery below.

I liked his previous film Wai dor lei ah yut ho/ Dream Home (2010), very much...so this sounds very funny but very edgy stuff....

Pang has been pushing the envelope in Hong Kong for a long time now, in really smart, literate ways. I find some of his movies too specific culturally to really work for me but the guy is easily one of the very best working in the industry there today.

Well...I´ve only seen Wai dor lei ah yut ho/ Dream Home so far but that movie was pretty edgy....said a lot about the socialeconomic situation in Hong kong etc.

At th same time it was a sharp(no pun intended) dark comedy, with gore.....I want to see rest of his stuff.

Though it's not really typical for him I think Isabella is my favorite Pang.

James MarshMarch 5, 2012 12:51 AM

Very much looking forward to this, along with (though less so) LOVE IN THE BUFF, which is opening the festival. The best Pang films to check out are (in my opinion): YOU SHOOT I SHOOT, ISABELLA and LOVE IN A PUFF.

And EXODUS, that film is terribly overlooked. Really looking forward to this, haven't missed a Pang film yet and this material seems to be right up his alley.
