Ah Kam

Surprisingly unvarnished tribute to the unsung women and men who perform stunts in Hong Kong movies. Bond-girl-to-be Michelle Khan (who actually did break into movies doing stunts) plays Ah Kam, an immigrant from mainland China who braves her way into movie work, bungles an affair with a businessman and winds up confronting the triad gangsters who have killed her mentor (Hung). Not one of Hui's personal films, but transparently sincere. Khan did her own stunts and broke a leg during production.
