Movie Info

Peter Pau, the oscar winning cinematographer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, directed Tian Mai Chuanqi (The Touch). Pak Yin-fay (Michelle Yeoh) and Pak Yeuk-tong (Brandon Chang) are siblings in a family of acrobats. Bad guy Karl (Richard Roxburgh) employs gifted thief/acrobat Eric (Ben Chaplain) to steal an item created in the 1200s. Eric is successful, but the fact that he is Yin-fay's adopted brother makes his motivations less than clear. While everyone attempts to possess the item, it is Yeuk-tong who ends up with it. He and his girlfriend take off with the object, with all of the other characters in pursuit.

Audience Reviews for The Touch


Bleurgh! Michelle tried very hard to keep the fun up in this Indi-lara-tomb raiding tigers. The concept is simple, guardians trying to prevent bad guys from getting the Holly Weapon. Not the freshest idea ever, but the actions were quite fun to watch. The supporting actors were all very randomly casted, making the film miserable to have any real dramatic tension.

Too many special effects, but Michelle Yeoh and Richard Roxburgh make it fun.
