As a follow-up to Wonder Women (1987), maverick Kam Kwok-leung co-directed with New Wave auteur Leong Po-chih his second project, again making biting social commentary with his absurd sense of humour. Cora Miao the heroine swaps identity with her twin sister to stay at the mental institution, the latter has been hospitalised. Reluctant at first to mingle with her fellow inmates, the elder sister gradually fits in, as the thin line between the sane and the insane begins to blur. This fun-loving, free-wheeling and heart-warming drama offers fresh insights into how an individual relates to the larger environment. The exhilarating cameos by A-listers also make it an unmissable treat for film buffs.
