A good example of the Hong Kong predilection for slapping together a film as a pastiche of successful elements from other films, this Cinema City production from director Po-Chih Leong credits five different screenwriters. Leslie Cheung stars as Chi Ken-wing (or "Chicken Wing" as he is sometimes referred to), who meets a beautiful and mysterious young woman named Cecilia (Cherie Chung). When Cecilia disappears, Wing does some digging and determines that she was probably a ghost. Of course, she really isn't a ghost at all, but merely playing dead in order to keep Wing from getting hurt by her violently jealous boyfriend, Sam (Melvin Wong). Naturally, Wing pursues her anyway and gets beaten up, but the two fall in love and begin seeing each other, leading Sam to pursue more drastic measures. Philip Kwok co-stars with Ann Bridgewater and David Wu. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
