YesAsia Editorial Description

An early film from director Ringo Lam, The Other Side Of A Gentleman provides audiences with an unusual, but potent star pairing: Brigitte Lin and Alan Tam! Jojo (Brigitte Lin) is a psychology student involved in a curious experiment. Her group wishes to take a narcissistic playboy and subjugate his selfish tendencies using the proper psychological tools. More importantly, they need the right woman for the job. The target is Alan (Alan Tam), but their initial candidates for his partner are quickly rebuffed. Luckily the perfect girl is in their midst. The group uses Jojo to tame Alan's wild ways, but the experiment has unforeseen consequences. Jojo begins to sense the cruelty of their work, even though the experiment is a success. In fact, it may be too successful, as Alan becomes fixated with Jojo, even after discovering her true game AND the fact that she's engaged to a university professor! Can Alan convince Jojo that he's the one for her? The incomparable Brigitte Lin anchors The Other Side Of A Gentleman, a romantic comedy drama that packs surprising emotional punch!

An mid-'80s time capsule Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
The plot of "The Other Side of a Gentleman" anticipates films like "The Truman Show": An unwitting young man is made the subject of a psychological experiment by placing him in a fake environment. In this early Ringo Lam-directed film, the subject of the experiment is Alan Ng (Alan Tam), who is deemed to be a perfect example of irresponsible, immature Hong Kong youth. Pursuant to the experiment, the attentions of an attractive young woman are intended to lead the youth through a process that results in his maturation. The experiment is conducted by a group of Hong Kong social leaders led by a psychology professor and his student Jojo (Brigitte Lin) to whom the prof is engaged. Given her obvious beauty, Jojo is selected to be the woman who intervenes in Alan's life.

The experiment seems to be yielding results, as Alan makes strides to earn the love and respect of Jojo. However, when she sees how serious Alan has become about her -- and begins to feel an attraction to him -- Jojo wants to end the experiment. And when Alan witnesses Jojo and the prof kissing, his emotions are shattered. How can Jojo extract herself from the situation without further hurting Alan? And how can she deal with her own feelings for him?

"The Other Side of a Gentleman", alas, bites off more than it can chew. It wants to be a goofy comedy, a drama, a romance, and a commentary on themes of class and educational differences. The film's crudely manipulative script struggles with the task and the movie's culmination is preposterous. Ringo Lam's direction is as good as the script permits him to be and Lin Ching-Hsia manages to shine throughout. Alan Tam gives a rather exhausting performance; I wish someone had told him to relax. Several very pleasant Alan Tam songs are featured in the film.

The Other Side Of Gentleman Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10
I bought this movie because of Tung Wai. I don´t like Alan Tam, maybe I hate him even more after I´ve seen this movie. He´s character was creepy and crazy. It felt like he was the only one in love, and forced her too love him. I hate the ending. The story was pointless and ridiculous. This movie was really bad.

Brigitte Lin and Alan Tam Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"The Other Side of a Gentleman" is one of my favorite Alan Tam movies and he stars with Brigitte Lin who was a very sought-after actress in the 1980s. I really enjoy the pairing of them and feel they have great on-screen chemistry. Brigitte plays a well-bred psychology student who comes from a good home. And she is engaged to an elite and highly respected college professor. Alan plays a guy who works at a store selling jeans. Brigitte's psychology group devise a plan to observe and study the behavior of a not-so-educated guy. She has to befriend him so that they can study him. But he falls in love with her and even willing to give his life to her. She somehow has fallen in love with him too, but fights her feelings because she is set to marry the college professor.

I love this movie. In the end, it is very touching. I like Alan's character very much. Even though his character is not very educated, he really knows how to treat people nicely. He is kind and considerate of other people's feelings. The college professor could not be compared to him. No matter how much education and how elite the college professor is, he does not understand what it is to truly love someone.

Alan Tam - The Perfect Gentleman Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is a heart rending tale between the two central characters. Alan Tam meets and falls in love with Ching Hsai Lin and takes part unknowingly in her scheme. The scheme is that she has said she can get any man to fall for her. When Alan eventually finds out what is happening he tries to break up the impending wedding between Ching Hsai Lin and her fiancée at any cost. Will he succeed? Watch and see. This is a must view film - very dark in places but the storyline keeps you routing for the two characters to get together. A joy to watch.
