not clear. According to many lists, Tokyo is
nowhere near the largest city in the world.
It is not listed in the top 10. The Tokyo
area, however, is considered to be the
world's most populous urban area, so the
ranking hinges on the definition of a city.

Rebekah or "Yi tan zhao yao jing: 96 Ying zhao ming ce," which actually
translates as "Entertainment Industry Evil Lens: 96 Call List" is a Hong Kong
Category III comedy most notable because of the female lead, Cammy Choi. Cammy
won Miss Photogenic at the Miss Asia contest in 1995, and decided to try her
hand at Category III films. This was the second of two, after which she gave
up movies and returned to night club work.
As the film opens, Cammy is working in a club as a singer, but frankly her
assets are somewhat lower than her vocal chords. Another girl screws a manager
to convince him to fire her. Cammy retaliates by screwing the club owner in
the men's room with his wife just outside. She meets Mandy, who agrees to put
her in movies if she will agree to supply her tits for a man to grab. He has
bet that he can grab one with one hand. He loses. Cammy does a commercial,
then a bit part in a film, and after she is covered with blood, guts and
worms, decides she doesn't want a film career after all. Mandy offers to make
her a partner in her agency. Cammy soon discovers that the real agency
business is supplying young starlets for wealthy men. Things go well until
Mandy becomes jealous of Cammy's relationship with a guy, which leads to a
totally bizarre ending that comes out of left field.
As an idea of the humor, a minor actress is being ignored on location by
the press in favor of the female lead, so she pulls a nipple out of her
bathing suit top and is suddenly the center of attention. In another scene, a
triad boss screws a mainland girl who keeps trying to tell him she has VD. He
also has two underlings enjoy her. When he breaks out with four sexually
transmitted diseases, he tries to extort money from Cammy and Mandy, but the
other two guys spoil his plans.
IMDb readers have not yet formed an opinion. This is an over the top comedy
with a truly twisted ending. I did find it amusing in parts. The transfer is
not at all good, and looks like it was simply mastered from a weak Laser Disk
version. The subtitles are burned in, and often hard to read. The film does
deliver as far as flesh, simulated sex, and weirdness, earning a C-.
