Movie Info

A profoundly untalented bit-part actor strives to be a kung-fu star in this warm-hearted, loopy French comedy by acclaimed director Anne Fontaine. Working as a movie extra by day and by night practicing his kung fu, which he learned solely from aping 1970s flicks, Augustin (Jean-Chretien Sibertin-Blanc) tries to jump start his training after having a vision of an elderly Asian man who tells him to go to "the land of the warrior monks." When going to China proves unworkable, he packs up his belongings and his trusty bicycle and heads for French Chinatown. Checking into the Hotel Shanghai, which rents rooms by the hour, he lands a job in a Chinese trinket shop and enrolls in martial arts classes. After one too many kicks provokes a feeling of dizziness, he goes to the local acupuncturist, Ms. Ling (played by none other than Maggie Cheung who learned French for the role). Sparks fly and soon the two fall for one another. This film was screened at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
