The amazing Grace Chang
23 August 2004 | by gorbmanSee all my reviews

Grace Chang was a big star phenomenon in the 50s and early 60s. It's not hard to see why in MAMBO GIRL. What we'd call camp (but who knows what this excessive style means to viewers 40 years ago?) starts with the very opening credits, as we see Chang's legs sinuously move to music down stairs on a stage. With big nods to Western styles--opera, torch songs, Latin music, film noir--this movie proclaims its modernity. The contemporary Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-Liang is a huge fan of Grace Chang--see especially his loving homage to her outrageous songs in 2000's THE HOLE (e.g., the "Achoo Cha- cha"). In MAMBO GIRL Chang is the seductress with the heart of gold, giving a performance every bit as spellbinding as Marlene Dietrich or the 20th century's other Euro/American movie and music divas.
