Despite being shown on only 11 screens across Hong Kong, the local audience is claiming GIRL$ as their “Hong Kong” film. It was my intention to make a film about Hong Kong for Hong Kong people. I always believed it would work because there aren't any fake romance or fake love in this film like in most co-production hybrid films we see today. The audience has been starved of anything genuine from their real lives for a long time.
I hope they keep coming out to enjoy GIRL$ as it heads towards the second week which is beating films that have more than double the number of cinemas GIRL$ has.
“A DARING and BOLD HONG KONG FILM”
“A look at Hong Kong's modern social issues”
“Solid performances from the four actresses"
"New generation of neo-realism, especially in the depiction of sexual encounters on the internet."
Local preeminent film critic Shek Kei from Ming Pao daily
"Documentary style - realistic"
"It's been a long time a Hong Kong film has stayed so true to Hong Kong."
