Shaw Brothers Mania: A Romantic Comedy from Taylor Wong.
19 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Behind the Yellow Line (1984) was one of the last Shaw Brothers productions. This romantic comedy is about a young man (Leslie Cheung) who's late to his first day of work. After missing a taxi ride, he decides to catch the subway. On the subway train he meets a pretty young lady named Monica (Maggie Cheung) and a loud mouth woman named Anita (Anita Mui) who messes with him just for fun. But it's love at first sight for Leslie and Monica. Anita also falls for Leslie but he only has eyes for Monica. In this crazy world and by simple fate will Leslie and Monica find true love with each other?

A nice surprise from the waning days of Shaw Brothers. Taylor Wong and Gordon Chan create a very enjoyable romantic comedy. Maggie Cheung looking good as ever in her film debut and Anita Mui (with 80's hairdo) acting her way to a Hong Kong Film Festival award for best supporting actress. Alfred Cheung makes a cameo appearance as himself inside a movie theater. He scolds Leslie because he has an argument and scoffs at the movie he and Monica were watching.

If you like romantic comedies then this movie is just for you. A great film debut from Maggie Cheung. It was nothing but up for her and Anita Mui. The Cantonese soundtrack has a duet between Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui.

Highly recommended.
