A somewhat playful foray into the world of ghosts and Chinese opera as the ghost of a long-dead Cantonese opera diva returns to tie up the unfinished business of her former life with the aid of her most recent male incarnation.
Despite some unnecessary silliness in parts, this light-weight comedy has some quirky charm particularly in Joey Yung's long-dead gender-bender Giselle. But this is a ghost story and probably not for horror fans. No blood and gore here just the occasional wistfulness over what might have been and what could be for both the living and the dead.
Despite a somewhat simplistic and, at times, weak plot Joey Yung makes the most of her role and is the real reason to see this film. There are a few intriguing but light-weight moments about the backstage activities of Chinese opera. However, the trials of Giselle's contemporary reincarnation are a bit perplexing and are really just a backdrop for the heart of this movie.
Nice costumes and a moderately amusing film.
