Who says Yam Bing-yee can only play the maid? In The Golden Cat, a genre blender mixing martial arts with Cantonese opera, she is an agile fighting woman, giving proof to her versatility. Yam makes her grand entry in the film with a rooftop practice, followed by several choreographed skirmishes with the Golden Cat of the title, putting the acrobatic skills she honed from opera performances on glorious display.
