A fortune teller (Michael Hui), who gives pretentious forecasts, was investigated by a revenue agent (Leon Lai) for failing to pay his taxes. However, the teller's lucky break came when he received a blow to the head during a robbery attempt, resulting him in receiving psychic powers. Thus, hoping this would get the agent off his back, he uses his new-found powers to try to help the agent solve a drug smuggling case that has been plaguing the revenue service.

Why do fortune tellers exist ?
11 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Feeling Bone" is a kind of fortune telling in China, and this movie tells a story of a young man and a fortune teller of feeling bone. Through this story we may know more about what people really want to obtain from fortune telling, and more important, the relation between confidence and achievement.

Uncertainty is the main source of fear, and nothing great we can achieve under a strong fear to future. For this reason some people believe strongly in fate, and paying someone for telling them their fate becomes something absolutely natural. Such demand makes fortune telling a profitable business, and the underlying supports for this business is our fear to uncertainty. Of course fortune telling may not be the only solution, working hard seems to be more reliable. This movie shows this point quite well and the way it employs is very entertaining.

Like the works of his younger brother Sam Hui, the most successful pop singer in HK in 70s', those of Michael Hui also very often conveys messages very positive. Of course those message are simple but not thin, and their works are in fact quite "innocent" indeed. This movie is a must see.
