| A Fishy Story (1989)
Director: Anthony Chan
Bee, Maggie Chan, Anthony Chan
A troubled romance set against the backdrop of the
politically-inspired riots that swept HK in 1967. The central couple are
neighbors in a Kowloon City tenement. Just as they begin to realize how
much they need each other, the riots tear them apart.
Maggie Cheung plays an actress who shares an
apartment building with Kenny Bee. They meet one day when she walks in
on him in the toilet, and an odd sort of relationship begins.
Although their lives are unfolding along radically
different trajectories, an upwardly mobile movie starlet and an earthy
taxi driver (Kenny Bee) fall deeply in love and try to maintain their
relationship amidst the anti-colonial unrest of 1960s Hong Kong.
An interesting romantic-comedy between a gorgeous
social climber with no scruples (MAGGIE CHEUNG) and a "get nowhere"
attitude cabby (KENNY BEE). This sensitive drama mixes lighthearted
comedy, but manages to generate real suspense at the end, before moving
to a searing climax. Winner Best Actress (MAGGIE CHEUNG), 1989 Hong Kong
