A Chinese Ghost Story (1987)

10/10 - Seminal work of sublime beauty
Reviewed by Simon on 01 December 2002
Tsui hark had a habit of redefining and reinventing any genre he touched, and raising the bar. His collaboration with Ching Siu-Tung in 1987 produced a wonderful movie with a unique visual style and almost unbounded energy. Again, Tsui Hark mixes up genres like a master chef and Ching Siu-Tung provides the style and grace. Who could fail to fall in love with Joey Wong in this role?
