Renowned Hong Kong director Fruit Chan’s erotic drama Three Husbands has been picked up by Fine Films for Japan and Swallow Wings Films for Taiwan.
The third entry in Chan’s Prostitute Trilogy, following Durian Durian and Hollywood Hong Kong, is nominated for best director, best actress for Zeng Meihuizi and best new performer for Chan Charm Man at the upcoming Hong Kong Film Awards. It has already earned recognition from the Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards (best film, best director and best actress) and Hong Kong Film Directors’ Guild Awards (best actress).
Edko Films is opening the film in Hong Kong on March 28, while Swallow Wings will open it in Taiwan by the end of April.
Chan’s Hong Kong-based production company Nicetop Independent handles festivals and international sales. The film premiered in competition at Tokyo International Film Festival last year.
