One guy’s student film project is simply a means to an end -- he gets to kiss a certain girl! This inspires a group of friends to do the same, only on a slightly larger scale. They want thier favourite Japanese porn actress -- Amamiya Manami playing herself --to star in their movie. Sounds like a teen sex comedy? Well, it's more of a sophisticated satire on Hong Kong youth -- scenes of applying for a start-up loan whilst posing as porn film producers are reminiscent of the amphetamine-aided job interviews that the cast of Trainspotting are forced to attend -- A.V. is definitely not another Porkies!
