He's a Woman, She's a Man


Time Out says

The United Film-makers Organisation (UFO) has made a splash in the tough Hong Kong market with a series of comedy-dramas about the problems facing yuppies. This one purports to deal with gender issues and has a smattering of gay supporting characters. A young woman (Yuen) tries to break into showbiz by posing as a male singer; a straight talent manager (Cheung) is disturbed to find himself fancying her, unaware of her actual gender. Almost unwatchably shallow and insincere, the film tries to give its affirmative hetero ending a gay-friendly spin.
