Audience Reviews for Chinese Odyssey 2002
Lau manages his humor without trying so hard, and the jokes slide through easily; he also masters the high gloss romance, plus one dazzling fight scene.
Ok, Maybe there is such thing as Chinese humor and Eastern humor, and maybe I shouldn't call it a bad humor here, but I think I can distinguish between a good movie and a bad one, a good acting and poor acting. And as far as bad ones - there is plenty of them in China, in Russia or in US. Always will be.
A "Happy-New-Year" film of Hong Kong, 2002. Directed by Jeffrey Lau and produced by Kar-Wai Wong. It is a crazy and happy comedy featuring some top stars of all over China (some of them are familiar faces in Kar-Wai Wong's films) and full of (official) parodies of Kar-Wai Wong's films. Jeffrey Lau always makes films based on this kind of eccentric situation, but it is originated from his rich knowledge about traditional Chinese plays. For example, the use of sex as the core of comedy in this film (like a woman pretends as a man and fall in love with a man or a woman) is very original to China, I think. Well, it's just already good to watch Tony Leung, Faye Wong, Wei Zhao, and Chen Chang giving some crazy performances, so worth to check out.
