Directed by Stanley Kwan
singers/actors Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung are paired in this supernatural
love story which alternates between the brothels, theaters and opium dens
of Hong Kong in the Thirties, and the cool, detached world of the present
day. The ghost of a courtesan appeals to a young journalist to help her
find her lost lover who recovered from their joint suicide attempt and
thus failed to join her in the spirit world. Cantonese with English
subtitles. 99 minutes.
