19 Jul The Canton Godfather
Kuo Cheng-Wah (Jackie Chan) is a kind-hearted boy from the country who moves to the big city. One day, after buying a rose from Lady Rose, a series of very lucky events unfold and before long he finds himself to be the head of the city’s crime gang. Thanks to the events of that fateful day he truly believes that his luck comes from the roses he buys from Ms Rose and makes sure to buy one every day. There came a day, however, where Lady Rose wasn’t at her post, and Wah finds out that she needs help, to which he agrees.
This is a fun film and one of Jackie Chan’s favourite films he’s played in. The film won Best Action Choreography at the 9th Hong Kong Film Awards. It was also received nominations for Best Actor (Jackie Chan), Best Art Direction (Eddie Ma) and Best Film Editing (Peter Cheung).
