A nice story, but not much of a comedy...
14 July 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I enjoy the Hong Kong cinema quite a lot, and I was given the chance to sit down and watch "Always On My Mind" (aka "Cheung chin fuchai") in mid-2019. Needless to say that I needed no encouragement to sit down to watch this 1993 movie, as I had never seen it before.

Well, first of all, for a comedy, then "Always On My Mind" was frightfully devoid of anything funny really. It is not the type of comedy that will have you laughing. No, it is more a type of feel-good comedy, where the storyline and the characters make you appreciate something. For that aspect, "Always On My Mind" was actually quite interesting.

The storyline told in "Always On My Mind" was good. It was nicely written and executed on the screen. And there was a good, continuous flow to the storytelling. The movie didn't really have any dull moments to it.

I can't really claim to be overly familiar with the lead actors Michael Hui (playing Chang Yau-Wai) nor Josephine Siao (playing Yin). But I will say that they were actually fantastic in their roles, because they were good at acting and they poured their hearts into the characters.

"Always On My Mind" is an enjoyable movie for sure, I had just expected more of a comedy from it, given its IMDb label as 'comedy'. Oh well...
