Seamy Side of Life II: Crying Stars
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Lam Wah-Fan.

A country girl moves to Shenzhen to earn big money. She finds out that money is hard to come buy unless you are a bar hostess who also does sexual favors on the side. In a refreshing change of pace from the usual didactic hooker stories, she shrugs it off and pretty much says, SHOW ME THE MONEY! She moves in with two friends, one of whom (Anita Chan) has to turn tricks to pay or her mother's surgery (oh, what noble sacrifice). The third girl is dating their pimp, Michael Tong, who ends up raping the other two in his spare time and creating all kinds of tension. They all live together, sort of like a rapist's version of THREE'S COMPANY. Shot on video.
