Movie Info

A fan desperately desires to meet her idols in this gender-bending Hong Kong farce. The idols in question are singer Rose and her manager/lover Sam, who copes with his chronic ennui by playing along to Beatles records and dreaming of going to Africa. Wing is the rabid fan. To meet the popular duo, she binds her breasts, disguises herself as male, and heads out to audition during a talent search. The two are taken with the "young man's" abilities and decide to take him on. The trouble begins when Sam begins to feel a strange sexual attraction to Wing. Heretofore, Sam had thought of himself as purely heterosexual, but now he is not so sure. Romantic mayhem ensues until the mystery is finally solved. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovimore

A popular gender-bending romance with light comedy and agnostic sexuality "He's a Woman, She's a Man" oddly enough treats its subject matter with kid gloves, especially given the industry it was produced in. Anita Yuen, who received further accolades for her role as a tomboy passing herself off as a man, almost gets away with the whole charade, but every time the camera frames her in a close-up -- the jig is up, so to speak. For a film with eight writers (including star Leslie Cheung) "He's a Woman, She's a Man" is fairly grounded but when the final chapter takes a turn for the serious what preceded it feels like sopping wet kitsch. You are left with the impression the film acted as a form of primal therapy to Cheung, a bisexual, who the media often mischaracterized as a homosexual, as he is seen yelling numerous times "I am not gay!"

A nice Hong Kong urban love story. Good choice of topic, although it is not fully made the most of. Still, it shows well how Hong Kong people think about those issues about homosexuality or sex in general, and it's very interesting. Really great choice of actors for the three main roles. Sometimes how the story goes seems little bit too expedient, but worth to watch for several times.
