YesAsia Editorial Description

Writer-director Chor Yuen's hit 1972 comedy The House of 72 Tenants is a colorful, innately human film about the Hong Kong common man. Set during a period of depression, the film chronicles the daily lives of a single urban building (the "house") split up into several separate units, and the actual people (the "72 tenants") that dwell within. Given the fluctuating economy, the lives of the people are in constant flux, and as such are given to emotions and situations that flare up without a moment's notice. The acquisition of daily necessities, disputes over personal items, possible evictions, threatened marriages, and lots of screeching and hollering punctuate the lives of these everyday people, who are made distinct and colorful by their vivid personalities, and director Chor Yuen's skill at making them different and real. A landmark filmmaking achievement and one of its year's biggest box-office hits, The House of 72 Tenants is a welcome discovery from the Shaw Brothers vaults that features a virtual who's who of the era's most popular screen names.

A landmark Shaw Bros. classic Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
It's easy to see why Hong Kong viewers embraced this nostalgic portrait of a dilapidated tenement, its dastardly landlords, and destitute dwellers. Featuring a superb cast in a wide array of well-drawn roles, the film expertly balances melodrama and comedy. Particularly striking to the contemporary viewer are the images of crime and corruption that appear to have been a common feature of the era depicted.

The Best Shaw Comedy Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is the best comedy film from Shaw. It broke all box office history before Bruce Lee films.

The Best Comedy from Shaw Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Another one by director Chu Yuan, HK's most versatile and under-rated film director, he actually made more films than Chang Cheh and more successful and varieties too, this film revived the Cantonese films genre and smashed all box office in HK during its time, until Bruce Lee arrived.

Too bad, all the DVDs info don't show what are the special features, if any.
