Storyline

Former child actor and award winning Hong Kong martial-arts movie idol David Chiang directs and stars in this Chang Cheh sponsored outing which is a surprisingly liberal and progressive departure from their usual conservative themes as found in their signature martial arts resume. Instead, fans are refreshingly treated to this mature kaleidescope of comic sketches more along the lines of Li Han Hsiang's late filmography portraying human nature and man's search for love and desire, infidelity and sex during the free-wheeling 1970s in contemporary Hong Kong. Highlights of this satiric anthology include a youth who upholds his chivalry in the presence of his besieged girlfriend threatened by a gang of street thugs, a handsome bachelor cruising for action with tastes that aren't what it appears to be, a well-heeled established businessman with a propensity to frequent seedy love hotels or an outrageous raincoat clad flasher who is emasculated by an equally brazen female flasher ...

A So So Compilation
23 November 2008 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

David Chiang directs and sometimes stars in this series of vignettes about humans who sometime act like fools. This is a compilation of stories about people and how they conduct their life. In a general sense it is amusing, but its always tough to sustain something like this at a feature length film. There are stories here that are uninteresting and drag down the film somewhat. If you will, it almost seems like a compilation of sketch comedy. I was thinking the show "Love American Style" while I was watching this, a show about love but with at least two to three separate tales per half hour. That show was uneven also. This film features some nudity, which is fine, but its not completely necessary. Not a horrible film by any means, just keep your hand on the remote button for fast forward as needed.
