[Movie Review] SARA 《雏妓》

Please note that there will be special sneaks starting this Friday, 20th to 22nd March!!

Thank you Clover Films for all movie stills!


Main actress of this film, Charlene Choi never failed to surprise and to impress with her performance in acting over the years. She takes a whole new level to her acting as she played a daring role (where she have to be touched and undressed in some scenes) in this upcoming movie - SARA.

The movie depicts the life story of Sara (played by Charlene Choi) from young till adulthood. It was due to a terrifying incident happened to her at home, she decided to leave the house and later becoming a journalist who explores the dark secrets of sex tourism in Asia. In between and before her career as a journalist, she faces a lot of unfortunate events.. As a viewer, i can really feel the pain she had to go through.. (it makes my friends and i teared over it..) surviving alone in the street, falling for someone she should not; witnessing death of her loved ones; and risking her life to save an underage prostitute in a foreign country. Watch how she battle all these in the movie, overcoming her fear and got stronger as she grow.

Overall, this movie gives a very insightful story. I like the storyline. Great acting skills from the actors and actresses in the movie, especially Charlene Choi and Simon Yam. And i like how they highlight current social issues such as sex tourism and child prostitution. Its a show worth-watching!









Brief Synopsis: 

Journalist Sara has just spent four months completing an in-depth investigation piece. Her editor-in-chief, afraid of offending powerful politicians and business moguls, refuses to run it. Sara’s boyfriend, who works for the same magazine, chooses not to warn her and even sides with the editor-in-chief. In just one moment, Sara is turned off by her work, her love relationship and even about life.

At this low point in her life, Sara exiles herself to Chiang Mai, Thailand. One evening, while at a bar, Sara meets child prostitute Dok-my. During her time getting to know Dok-my and through the process of rescuing her, Sara becomes haunted by the memories of her own past.

邱礼涛导演继《性工作者十日谈》及《性工作者2我不卖身.我卖子宫》后,再次挑战社会性题材,联同监制杜汶泽,借一个出卖肉体换取机会的少女成长故事,唤醒大众关注雏妓问题。电影已率先荣膺第21届香港电影评论学会大奖推荐电影,其中蔡卓妍更凭脱胎换骨的演技,与影帝任达华双双先拔头筹,赢得第6届澳门国际电影节最佳男女主角。

原来Dok-My令玉玲忆起自己过去十多年的成长经历:曾被继父性侵犯、离家出走,继而遇上比她年长30年的甘浩贤(任达华饰)──玉玲愿意被包养以换取学费及栖身之所,与甘浩贤展开长达8年的不道德交易,但在这买与卖之间,二人关系实际上千丝万缕,感情如父女又如情人般扑朔迷离……
