Movie Info

A minor subgenre of Hong Kong exploitation, the "Hostess" film resembles nothing so much as the American adults-only "roughie" melodramas of the 1960s, mixing softcore sleaze and moralistic posturing in a manner recalling the films of Doris Wishman and Michael Findlay, among others. This Hostess film from director David Lam deals with a number of prostitutes and their daily travails. Jenny (Maggie Cheung) is a television actress who prostitutes herself in Thailand so she won't be recognized; Tsui-tsui (Petrina Fung) hooks to pay for her husband's dialysis treatments; and Shan-shan (Carrie Ng) is hooked on tranquilizers and financially destitute. During the course of the film, all three women slide toward depravity and death in the hysterical and histrionic fashion which has been a time-honored tradition of exploitation potboilers from The Cocaine Fiends to Fleshpot on 42nd Street. Elsie Chan, Stanley Fung, and Lau Siu-ming co-star.
