Summary: Cat III for surgery

I'm not sure how long Yung Hung took to learn proper acting, but this one must have been made before that point. Despite being the title char, Yung really one of three equal chars, the other being her friend Ling and Dr Tracy.

No hot steamy sex and nudity here. Yung flashes her bosoms after surgery, proud of her brand new spare parts, and briefly during the start of a sex scene with Lawrence Ng. There are a few more shots of boobs being cut by scalpels during one the the MANY scenes of what appears to be actual surgery, and this is the only reason this film is Cat III. Ugh !

A query about the cast. Having recently seen OUR NEIGHBOUR DETECTIVE, I am almost certain that the actress who played Milky in OND played Ling here in FPW, the actress being Tam Suk Mui. Anyone know this for sure ?

The story is pretty tepid melodrama, and Yuen King Tan plays it straight. Nuff said ?

Commoner May Ho, ashamed of her body, undergoes a series ofoperations to improve her appearance, snagging rich playboy Lau Hok Man in the process. Meanwhile, Tracy Wong, May's plastic surgeon, goes through her own bundle of insecurities. Features real shots of surgery that gave me the screaming willies. Boilerplate story and acting.
