"I'm so unlucky".
25 September 2015 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

Offbeat, colourful and cutesy Hong Kong fantasy romance of a well-worn story concept. There happens to be two plot threads streaming from this story… one more serious than the other.

Shing is a down-on-his luck cartoonist, who's on his way home when he hits a lady ghost Ching-Ching. This leaves the spirit stranded in the human world, where she attaches herself to Tony whenever his out of luck. While stranded there she meets another demonic spirit (known as ghost whore) who's trying to revive her dead son, after they were mistakenly sentenced to death for adultery.

It's likable, but familiar entertainment with a lousy ending. Batty characters come and go, while the scenarios are very cartoon-like with the jokes becoming tiring. Well it's like a comic strip coming to life, which does happen in the film in one very interesting scene. It's an odd and jarring mixture, mingling comical interactions and misunderstandings with some atmospheric imagery and nasty surprises. Still it's the central relationship that takes up most of the time where she helps him achieve what he wants, which for most part is quite dull. Where ghosts tease and torment the living, where the physical gags feature heavily and so does a superstitious framework when Feng Tien's Taoist priest arrives on the scene. The performances are mainly on the eccentric side (Tony Leung & Deannie Yip) and Joey Wang has a beautiful presence.
