A much better take on "Victor/Victoria" with "Tootsie" elements
6 June 1999 | by (Venice, California) – See all my reviews

An excellent parody into the workings of the Canto-pop industry for those familiar AND unfamiliar with it. Especially interesting that Leslie Cheung, a real life Canto-pop legend, plays the producer "Sam," to Carina Lau's singer-superstar "Rose." There are plenty of scenes involving music and songwriting, the best being the scene where the film's theme song "Chase" is "written" and performed by Cheung himself. Hilarious audition moments in the beginning of the film parody Chinese pop music, as well as equally funny portrayals of fan obsession. Poignant scenes between Lau and Yuen as "sisters," as well as for Cheung and Yuen while stuck in a darkened elevator. Carina Lau is perfect as the diva and Anita Yuen is truly phenomenal in her HKFilm award-winning turn as the gender-turned "Wing." Leslie Cheung is at the top of his form as straight man (no pun intended!). Laugh-out-loud comedy and great acting all around.
