Satirical jokes

Vulgaria tells the plight of a man in the Hong Kong entertainment industry.

To fight for a name in the movie circle, veteran movie executive producer To Wai-cheung (Chapman To) remakes an erotic film.

Producer To uses aging porn star Susan Shaw (Susan Shaw) and Popping Candy (Dada Chan) as Shaw's body double. But troubles pile on as To begins the process: The director wants to change the script, an actor quits, a condom sponsor leaves, and the investor burns the finished product.

Over 70 percent of the lines contain Cantonese dialect and dirty sex jokes.

Along with Chapman To and Susan Shaw, local favorites Ronald Cheng, Fiona Sit and Miriam Yeung also star in the film.

Before screening in Hong Kong, Vulgaria screened to audience at Taipei Film Festival last month, and plans on hitting the US and Canada in September.

In an interview with Hong Kong TV program Big Boys Club last week, leading actor Chapman To expressed that since movies like Vulgaria are too crude to pass certain censors, the film currently cannot be screened in the Chinese mainland.
