*刘现成映前介绍 Film Introduction by Liu Hsien-Cheng


The film is made by four famous directors. The reason for this unprecedented cooperation is to help Li Hanxiang to solve the financial crises of Grand View Company.

King Hu’s Anger sequence is based on a play of Peking opera, San Cha Kou. His mise-en-scene and the arrangement of space are superb. The Happiness sequence is directed by Li Hanxiang. Li uses the unique setting to make the ghost story appear like Chinese ink landscape with subtle and delicate feelings.
