A Funny Entertainment in a Hong Kong Version of Victor or Victoria
11 July 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The producer Sam (Leslie Cheung) and the singer Rose (Carina Lau) are a successful and happy couple on the screens and in the news. However, in the real life, they are splitting. Billy (Anta Yuen) is a girl, who dresses like a man, trying to get a spot in the show business. The problem is that both Sam and Rose fall in love with her. This Hong Kong version of `Victor or Victoria' is a funny romantic comedy and a good entertainment. The problem is that in Brazil, the Brazilian distributor Abril Video has decided to release a version dubbed in English, forgetting that the speech is part of the interpretation, destroying a funny movie with a ridiculous dubbing. A shame! Anyway, my vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): `Sou! Mas Quem Não É?' (`I Am! But Who Is Not?')
