One of Bruce Lee's forgotten films!!!
15 July 2006 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

While Bruce Lee is more famous for his action films, he also did at least 3 drama films, The Orphan, My Sweet Sister (cameo), and this film. The story, based on the famous novel by Cao Yue, is about a family whose patriarch's transgressions results in tragic consequences for his family. Bruce Lee's character falls in love with a girl, who's unknowingly his own half-sister, and his older brother unknowingly falls in love and impregnates his own sister. This film is currently only available on vcd with both the Cantonese and Mandarin soundtracks. Bruce did his own dubbing for this film. Unfortunately, it's not subtitled but it's a good film to watch nonetheless.
