Inspired by the experiences of a former assistant director, director Derek Yee takes aim at the absurdities of the Hong Kong film industry with this provocative satire. In a daring role that marks his first category-III film (Happy Together is his second), Leslie Cheung stars as a filmmaker who must swallow his pride and make a softcore porn film in order to make ends meet. After assisting Peter Chan on directing Who's the Woman, Who's the Man, Yee gave Cheung another chance to step behind the camera, letting him direct the elegant sex scene between Shu Qi and Elvis Tsui near the end of the film.
