Sai yau gei: Yut gwong bou haap

Jeffrey Lau Hong Kong, 1995

Finn Simons's rating of the film A Chinese Odyssey - Part One: Pandora's Box

A bizarre fantastic piece with lots of interesting physical gags and humor mixed in with a unique storyline. The music and use of camera angles to emphasize the humor and intensity of some scenes was great. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their wild mannerisms. There's a level of pleasure in the ridiculous. But mostly I enjoyed the complex fighting scenes with extended in-air motions and odd physics.
