Audience Reviews for My Young Auntie (Cheung booi)


An unalloyed triumph of kung fu comedy. Kara Hui is a marvel to watch in action as she's known as the best Hong Kong heroine of early 1980s and she is also underrated in terms of beauty.
I see what actor-director-writer Chia Liang Liu has done with this film is really a pleasant surprise: he has taken a martial-arts plot and re-constructed it along the lines of a Hollywood-style musical! Complete with episodes of singing and dancing! It was around the time of the making of this film that some film-makers and film fans began to recognize that the cinematic performance of martial-arts (really derived from the acrobatics of the Chinese opera) has more in common with dance than with fighting.
The result is an incredibly charming entertainment, filled with marvelously human characters attempting miraculous kung fu.
