A satisfying sequel
1 July 1999 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

A fun sequel to "He's a Woman, She's a Man" that focuses more on the sex-comedy aspects and less on the Canto-pop music industry. The movie begins right where the first one left off, and shows the fallacies of fairy-tale endings.

As with many sequels, it should really be watched with the first one. But to its credit, this is a must-watch if you enjoyed the first, and is in many ways superior to its predecessor.

Leslie Cheung gives a wonderful performance, as his character goes through more complex emotions than in the first movie. He looks absolutely bereft and heartbroken in some scenes, and manages to elevate the movie from being just a pleasant retread of the first. And he makes you believe that the ending in this movie is hard-won and worthwhile, and not a result of caprice and self-indulgence.

Anita Mui is a welcome addition as the woman who stirs everyone's feelings. She's made to look remarkably similar to Anita Yuen in some scenes, and the chemistry between the two Anita's is uncanny.

Anita Yuen is fine: somewhat less endearing since she's no longer a wide-eyed guttersnipe as in the first. But amazingly effective as both genders, since she pulls off a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman.

The title is very appropriate: "Who's the Woman, Who's the Man?" and really pushes the limits of all the bizarre sexual entanglement possibilities. Demonstrates the no-holds barred wackiness possible in foreign movies.

Teresa Lee plays a cute and cheerful lesbian who only seems to wear bathing suits and rollerblades. (Chinese Rollergirl?) Fish (Jordan Chan), while just a sidekick in the first movie, gets to enjoy a romance in this one. Eric Tsang returns as the wise old gay man "Auntie," who is privy to the hearts of both sexes.
