Not your typical Hong Kong director. Ho-Cheung Pang brings a more contemporary feel to his films, incorporating genre elements without making outright genre films. A director whose rich and varied oeuvre is well worth diving into.

With Isabella Ho-Cheung Pang combines strong drama with a superb sense of aesthetics. It's easily his most accomplished film to date where everything feels just right.

The film is up to par with the earlier films while still being different and distinctive enough to avoid turning into a cheap, cash-obsessed sequel.

Don't go in expecting a true slasher flick, expect a genre flick adapted by the mind of Ho-Cheung Pang.

Love In The Buff is a very worthy sequel. It's hard to say which film is the better one of the two, for that I should probably watch them once more, back to back.

You should like the arthouse aesthetics and you're required to pick up on the humor, if not this film is probably a serious drag. But if you do, it will be a worthwhile experience, guaranteed.

It's another great addition to Pang's oeuvre and proof that he's a truly unique force in the Hong Kong movie industry. One for the connoisseurs.

On the surface a simple romantic comedy, the film itself is grounded in a more realistic setting and allows a good look into the lives of contemporary HK citizens.

Quirky new Pang comedy. When a bunch of estranged friends band together once more in search of a bottle of breast milk, it quickly becomes clear this isn't a new Pang masterpiece. But if you're looking for a fun and cheeky comedy that resembles Pang's early comedies you're in for a pretty nice treat. A very amusing film indeed.
