The Shaw Brothers veered into outright fantasy territory with HUMAN GODDESS - and often hilarious and very timely look at the state of Hong Kong in the early 1970s!
Released in 1972 to adoring audiences, and directed by the iconic Ho Meng Hua (BLACK MAGIC, THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN) this is an oddball outing even by the estoric standards of 88 Films!
Taking audiences back to an era of troubled romance, painful poverty and greedy land tycoons - all of whom have to answer to an angel (played by the gorgeous Shanghai-born Li Ching) who has been sent from heaven to look after the residents of the former British colony - HUMAN GODDESS holds up as a riotous viewing experience even today.
A mash-up of several genres - from sex comedy to space-age optimism and even political satire - HUMAN GODDESS is one of the most astute Hong Kong movies of its decade and a must-see for anyone curious about the golden age of Hong Kong cinema! Only 88 Films could have brought this true obscurity back from the vaults in a stunning HD transfer that will surely win over a new generation of vixen-enthusiastic viewers.
