Plot: After SHANGHAI BLUES, director Tsui Hark has said that he became interested in using women as the central characters in his film. In PEKING OPERA BLUES, he portrays the ambitions of three different women in late nineteenth century China. Tsao Wan (Brigitte Lin) wants political change, in defiance of her father, a powerful general. Sheung Heung (Cherie Chung) is an avaricious musician who just wants to steal a box of jewelry, while Pat Neil (Sally Yeh) is an aspiring actress who dreams of performing in the all-male Peking Opera of her father. Plots and counterplots interweave in this fast-paced dramedy that features a woman playing a man playing a woman. Anticipating such gender-bending films as FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE and SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, PEKING OPERA BLUES is rich in slapstick humor and dazzling kung fu stunts. The film also has a serious underlying theme about the Chinese political landscape; in fact, the film was released just three years before the momentous events in Tiananmen Square in China.
