Two Individual Package Women
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Lau Kwok-Fai.


I miss Sharla Cheung Man, heroine of early nineties Stephen Chow films and one of my (admittedly many) international cinema crushes. She still works, though regular Hong Kong moviegoers would hardly know it. So it is with some pleasure that I discovered here here, in a rare starring role. And darn it if ten years on she doesn't still look the same. Unfortunately, her role, as a needy girlfriend choosing between a handsome, going-somewhere guy and a young, goofy, fed-ex delivery boy (Patrick Tang), is uninspiring and a little shallow. She basically hurts her foot and sits around at home whining waiting to see who will pay more attention to her. I'll Pass. The second half of the movie is about a housewife (Elena Kong) afraid her husband is having an affair, and who begins one herself with her charming neighbor (Alfred Cheung). This second story is more interesting than the first, but neither warrant much attention. Next time I start pining for Cheung Man I'll just pop in a tape of ALL FOR THE WINNER (1990, Wong Jing).
