Three Sisters And Their Act
This is a fairly lavish musical Hong Kong style. It tells the tale of a father, who vis a magician, and his three pretty daughters, who are singers and dancers. They perform together, and that is the most fun part of the film, when they're working together. The widower father also is pursuing a young temptress, whom he gives money to, sometimes including his daughter's salary. The three ladies eventually want to do their own thing and splinter off, one to Japan to be an actress, one to study ballet and one who stays and eventually falls in love with a composer. There are some unhappy moments, some comedy, and much drama. However, its a fun film and the songs are good. The key is whether the girls will get back together to perform. You do hope for it, they are good together. Not a perfect film, just a fun musical. If you like Hollywood musicals and don't mind a Hong Kong version, I recommend it. I liked it.
