Fantasia 2012 review: Vulgaria [Recommended]

vulgariaVulgaria (2012)
Director: Pang Ho-Cheung ; Screenplay: Pang Ho-Cheung, Lam Chiu-Wing, Luk Yee-Sum
Cast: Chapman To, Dada Chan, Kristel Lin, Ronald Cheng, Susan Shaw

Apparently this film hasn’t even screened in Hong Kong yet so I don’t know how audiences there will react but I along with many others in the Fantasia audiences were laughing our asses off very frequently. If you want a raunchy, outrageous comedy filled with oral sex and animal fucking jokes that also works as a satire of the film industry then this is the comedy for you.

The story is about a film producer who being behind on child alimony payments accepts funding from a mule loving triad leader to remake a classic porno. Really that’s all you need to know about the story as its best to go into it knowing as little as possible. There are surprisingly some decent emotional scenes but luckily they don’t get in the way of the comedy. Also be sure to stay for the credits for hilarious “lost footage” via hypnosis. Trailer after the jump.
