Vulgaria on Blu-ray and DVD in April

25 February 2013

Long-tme film producer To (Chapman To Man-chak) 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 her father 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 highest grossiong Hong Kong film of 2012, and one Twitch described as "Lewd, crude and flat-out hilarious...One of the year’s funniest films," the unsubtly titled Vulgaria is the latest from writer-director Pang Ho-Cheung, the man behind the popular comedy romance Love in the Buff (Chun giu yu chi ming) and the highly regarded 2004 drama Beyond Our Ken (Gung ju fuk sau gei).

Vulgaria will be released on UK Blu-ray and DVD on 15th April 2013 by Third Window Films at a yet to be confirmed RRP.

Extra features will include:

  • Making-of featurette
