Anita Mui, as always, shines. Cherrie Ying surprises!
There are two things that immediately pop out at you when you watch "Dance of a Dream": Anita Mui has always been and will probably always be the leading actress in Hong Kong cinema, and young Cherrie Ying will likely be the next Hong Kong actress to move into starring roles.
Mui is wonderful as the cold rich woman looking for romance and Ying touches your heart as a call girl looking to excel in ballroom dancing.
Andy Lau fans had better beware because there's no gun fights or car chases. Instead this is in the vein of the old Hollywood musical and it even brings the cast together for a wonderful version of "Walking with my Dad" which is a Chinese song sung to the tune of "Never on a Sunday." Quite breathtaking, actually.
