Dancing Bull

The strains of running a modern-dance company in the Thatcherite cultural climate of Hong Kong cause a marriage to break up: the choreographer husband lapses into inertia with a new girlfriend, while the dancer wife becomes a cultural mover. Not much of a storyline to support a movie that aims to take the temperature of present-day Hong Kong (in the aftermath of the Beijing massacre), and it must be said that the film is neither as impassioned nor as incisive as it thinks it is. But it does sustain interest at several levels, and Cora Miao (the first bona fide star to appear in an Allen Fong movie) copes with the director's improvisational methods as if born to them.
