DIRECTOR: LAU KAR-LEUNG

CAST: LIU CHIA LIANG, KARA HUI, HOU HSIAO

Choreographer-turned-star director Lau Kar-leung proved not only a consummate martial artist but also a champion of women with this brilliant Cantonese comedy of manners/fight fest. An elderly landowner takes a new bride to keep his coveted land away from his unscrupulous brother after his death, but traditional and demure Kara Hui Ying Hung also happens to be a kung fu expert, a fact that the scheming brother learns amidst glorious melee and hi-jinks which make for a classic of rough-and-tumble empowerment.
