Peking Opera Blues 刀馬旦 (1986) – Hong Kong

[NeoFilmShop.com] Peking Opera Blues (1986) – Hong Kong

Historical, prominent, meaningful are three words to describe this highly underrated Tsui Hark’s classic made more than 30 years ago. It is every bit as universally relevant as it is today. The trio Brigitte Lin, Cherie Chung and Sally Yeh were all at the pinnacle of their star attraction and their friendship remains the key core to this magnificent piece of cinema. Example of Hong Kong cinema which deals with real issues, history, culture, gender and humanity are hard to come by. In this film, we see all these elements merged together, yet Hark still have time to provide us with plenty of slapstick comedy, well staged gun play and Peking Opera. To call, this film entertaining would do it disservice as it is one that not only stand the test of time, but one that gets better with age and probably not a film Hong Kong can create once again.
