Veteran opera film director Lee Tit puts a modern spin on an otherwise tired classic about in-law conflict and troubled marriage in this all-colour version, casting Connie Chan Po-chu and Josephine Siao Fong-fong, dubbed the “Golden Boy and Jade Maiden”, in the leads. The versatile Connie Chan Po-chu is at her best in this male embodiment of both a passionate lover and a great fighter – a majestic demeanour that continues to awe and inspire her fans to this day in her stage collaborations with The Spring-Time Group.
