| The last gem of the Huangmeixi genre
The last Huangmei offering from Shaw studio is finally here! It was a very shrewd decision to cast Brigitte Lin, the reigning queen of the 70s Qiong Yao romances as Pao Yu and under the meticulous direction of Li Han Hsiang, she managed to pull it off and made this version of Pau Yu uniquely her own. Sylvia Chang has the esteemed role of Dai Yu but seemed miscast and tried too hard to make herself a tragic figure. In the hectic rush to complete the film for premiere ahead of the other competing version from Taiwan by Ivy Ling Po, many locations and scenes were skipped as evidenced by a few unfilmed tracks from the EMI original soundtrack release. Basically a one man/woman show for Brigitte Lin as other characters are under developed or completely left out and what a shame even the singer who dubbed all the songs was not mentioned. Applaud for the musical arrangements by Wang Fook Ling, which stand the test of time and still pull all the heart strings after 30 years!
