Storyline

Choi Hung village is full of innocents: people sing and work. The town beauty, Chi Wan, sees a stranger in the woods and falls in love, believing he's a fairy. He pursues her, keeping his real name secret, seeking advice from her sister, Heung, who suggests he buy Chi Wan a fan. Chi Wan and Heung's boyfriend, Dup, think the stranger and Heung are romantically involved, so mistaken jealousies erupt. Also new in town are two brothers, the new town official and his coarse enforcer; they can't believe there's no graft and corruption to profit from, so they try to establish a whorehouse. They also pursue Chi Wan. Can it all be sorted out? Will innocence prevail? And who is this stranger? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't bother.

This is a period comedy from Hong Kong, a story about the happy-go-lucky people of Choi Hung village, where there is love, secrets, jealousy and corruption.

The setting is nicely done with colorful period costumes and cinematography. I was excited that some of my favorite Hong Kong actresses, Gigi Lai and Amanda Lee, were in this movie. However, this movie is basically a goofy and messy attempt at being a laughable comedy. The plot goes all over the place and the slapstick humor is too screwball to be entertaining.

Hong Kong is known for its wild comedies, but a lot of them have plots you could actually follow and have a formula that is both suspenseful and captivating. This film is just one disorganized fair of screwy jokes after the other. I wouldn't bother with this film and check something else instead.

Grade F
