導演:劉家良
Director:Lau Kar Leung

  本片為劉家良自編自導自演的代表作,而惠英紅更藉此奪1982年香港金像影后。故事描述,惠英紅乃江湖賣藝女子,乃因惠受劉家良伯父收留,伯父臨終立惠為填房,以防其不肖弟王龍威奪其遺產,並要惠將其過契屋契,全部帶往省城,交給其亡兄之子劉家良。自始惠與劉及其子小候三人鬧出不少笑話…

Successful director Lau Kar Leung (a.k.a. Liu Chia-liang)’s films usually had a strong traditional emphasias on martial virtue and the importance of family . This is very evident in his kung-fu comedy My Young Auntie which stars Hui Ying-hung as a young heiress to a esteemed kung-fu family embroiled in internal strife . Her gutsy and dauntless performance opposite Lau’s starring role as her calm to psychotic elderly nephew-by-marriage , earned Hui the Best Actress Award at the 1982 HK Film Awards .

A star is born! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Kara Hui shines in "My Young Auntie". It is amazing to consider that she was only 16 years old at the time this movie was filmed and had no martial arts experience. The film required endless training for her and endless numbers of bad takes before she got many of the fight scenes right. However, none of that is evident when you view the film. Instead, she looks like an accomplished, stylish, and confident martial artist.

I appreciated the action sequences. Liu Chia Liang was a master at capturing fight scenes. The comedic elements of the movie, on the other hand, mostly fall flat. For me, most of them seem forced and silly.

This DVD is the beautifully restored Celestial Pictures version of this Shaw Brothers film. It contains some worthwhile extras, including a very informative recent interview with Kara Hui, who looks more beautiful now than she did in her Shaw Bros. heyday.

Watch this film to see the emergence of Kara Hui as a star.

A touch long & drawn out Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
There are some sweet straight sword scenes & the near opening scene of beautiful open hand forms on display that make this VCD worth while. However, the attempts at creating an action comedy is lost with the time. The end battles get long & drawn out with the lack of a climax to those fights to bring closure. It's as if interesting style elements were attempting to be stuffed into the choreography that it may have been lost in translation. Due to this aspect, certain scenes are worth multiple viewings to catch them. If you don't like owning a movie simply for a select few scenes, then move along. However, if you don't mind or have Kung-fu buddies you can share/enjoy snippets of Kung-fu movies, then this is worth keeping as a classic in your Shaw Brother's collection.
