Ga Yau Hei Si
A classic Chinese New Year comedy that embodies early 90's Hong Kong when it was at its peak and combines tribute and respect for both Chinese and western culture. It doesn't really require a kickass storyline, as CNY is more about the festive setting and the film does this well with beloved characters of the time. At the end of the day it is a feel good movie and is perfectly to be rewatched even though it is not the best, because it brings us back to better times. Recent CNY film repeatedly tries to become what this film was, but they keep failing because it is more than just budget and cast, it has to ring true to current culture. While the film is full of huge stars from the time, it also has to be said that Maggie Cheung was perhaps the most gorgeous actress ever in Hong Kong cinema.
