Jimmy Wang Yu in love... plus a very little Kung-Fu!
This MY SON, shot by Wang Yu soon before his Kung-Fu status and soon after his fame as swordsman in the Chang Cheh's classics, is an overdone melodrama with all the kind of ingredients you can expect in a love-story: the generation gap between a by-the-book father (a solid Tien Feng, the Bruce Lee's senior in FIST OF FURY) and a rebel son; the poor girl in distress; youngsters in a vicious night-club and so on. Lo Chen was a Drama's director for Shaw Brothers and here he's very careful in not-avoiding any stereotype, including an almost laughable scene with the girl's little sister singing as she works flowers while Wang Yu swings his head going in time with her. The sad ending recalls in some way REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, but the best thing is to see the Night Club filled by people like Wu Ma, Chan Chuen, Ku Feng, Tong Tin Hei, Huang Pei Chia and many others stuntmen-actors that worked in every Wushapian the Shaws had made until that moment and would have fill countless Kung-Fu movies in the 70's. Camerawork and photography are adequate. For Wang Yu's completists (expecially female completists, if there are any!).
