Ordinary Heroes is a 1999 Cantonese-language film directed by Ann Hui. It was co-produced by Hong Kong and China. It concerns social reform activists in Hong Kong. The film's Chinese title refers to a popular song by Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng.
An average film compared to director Ann Hui's more captivating works. But it's still well worth a viewing if simply for Anthony Wong's perfect portrayal of Father Peter Kam. The actor, who has appeared in too many lame films for his own good, finally landed a role which does justice to his superb acting.
