Helen Li Mei and Diana Chang Chung-wen, two of the most iconic beauties of the last century, shined in this urban musical masterpiece as they played two sisters chasing and accomplishing their father's dream with their song and dance troupe. Propelled by charming performances from its leads, Calendar Girl opens with an ensemble dance sequence set to the lively and jubilant song ‘I Love Cha-Cha'. The film captivates its audiences with its simple storytelling verve and fantastically choreographed musical numbers matched with exquisitely made costumes and stage décor. Yao Min took the musical helm on the rearrangement of 12 contemporary numbers, including ‘Drizzle' and the world-famous ‘Rose, Rose, I Love You'. This sound repaired version has reconstructed the 40-minute lost soundtrack in the original coloured film copy with a DVD provided by a cinephile.
