Fruit ChanChloe Maayan, Chan Charm-man, Chan Man-lei
2018 / Cantonese / 101 minutes / Color
The third in Fruit Chan’s “Prostitute Trilogy,” this provocative, frequently outrageous comedy-drama is the iconoclast director’s latest allegorical take on Hong Kong and its people. Near-mute sampan sex worker Mui has an insatiable libido which she placates with legions of eager johns. Pimped out by her three husbands, she’s subjected to bizarre indignities that push her and the audience to their limit. By turns, disturbing, brutal, and beautiful, Three Husbands is pure, uncut Fruit Chan.
