Love & Sex of Eastern
Wake me up when it's over. A totally fatuous film
that follows the lives of five shallow young women trying to make their
way in the HK chic set - with men lining up to pay their way.
Apparently, the characters are modeled after real
HK personalities. So we have: Selena (Paulyn Suen) married to a rich singer
and she cheats on her husband in the bed of a dying friend with her husband
- a so called "monkey affair"; Maggie (Kathy Chow) an actress with a jealous
boyfriend who then gets financially swindled by a later boyfriend; Hung
an unsuccessful singer who ends up going to a Brunei type country to be
a Royal family prostitute; Hing another actress who gets breast implants
to do Category III films and finally Athena Chu whose boyfriend dumps her
and she falls into the arms of a waiting lesbian.
Now these women are all very lovely - and that
really is the only reason to watch this since their characters are tedious
or idiotic and their stories not any better. I have read elsewhere that
the Athena Chu character is modeled after Sandra Ng, Hing after Veronica
Yip and Maggie - well lets just say she ends up with a French director!
Her boyfriend (played by Sunny Chan) is suppose to be Derek Yee and the
cheated upon husband is based on Kenny Bee and his wife. Athena's boyfriend
(read Sandra Ng) is suppose to be Alex To who broke Sandra's heart in the
A warning label about brain rot should come with
this film, but it is not too unkindly on the eyes.
