Chinese Odyssey 2002


Chinese Odyssey 2002 follows royal heirs Princess Wushuangand future Emperor Zheng De as they escape the Forbidden City to taste life among Ming Dynasty China’s have-nots. But in a gender-bending twist, the princess disguises herself as a fierce male warrior who proves equally beguiling to both martial arts master King Bully and his sister Phoenix. When King Bully plays family match-maker, the foppish young emperor is forced to compete with his own sister for the beautiful commoner’s hand. It may be the mother of all mo lei tau films – the crazy-quilt Hong Kong super-farces recently popularized in the West by Stephen Chow.
