Synopsis

Lao Kai (Ye Feng), a struggling widower deeply mired in debt, is coerced by his ruthless creditor, Mrs. Lung, into managing a brothel. His three daughters, each grappling with their own dire circumstances, find themselves with no option but to work as prostitutes in the establishment. Despite flickers of hope and budding romances that offer the promise of a better life for his daughters, Lao Kai’s brothel becomes the target of ruthless gangsters demanding protection money, plunging them all into a state of fear and chaos.

In The Girlie Bar, a film marked by its sombre storyline and outcomes, Ye Feng steps into his most serious role. A departure from his typically comedic roles, the film while not a box office hit, it unequivocally underscores Ye Feng’s versatility as an actor.

酒帘,即酒家门外为了招揽客人挂的招牌。在这部凄黯的电影里,老蓋(野峰 饰),一名欠了一屁股债的丧偶之人,被他无情的债主龍大姐强迫去管理一家酒店。他的三个女儿各有各的困处,最后也别无选择,只能在店里当起妓女。爱情的萌芽让她们开始抱有一丝柳暗花明的希望,却因酒店被无情的黑帮分子盯上而再次陷入恐慌。《酒帘》的画风与老盖的角色偏严肃、晦暗,有别于野峰往常的喜剧风格,充分地展现出他作为艺人的多才多艺。
