Finale in Blood, with Lawrence Cheng Tan-sui, Nonie Tao Kwun-mei, David Ng Tai-wai, Aoyama Chikako, and Josephine Ku Mei-wah. Directed by Chan Kwo. On Newport circuit. This Finale in Blood is one of those pictures that tries to be a little bit of everything - farce, ghost picture, bloodfest, sex film - but ends up not being very much of anything. The cast list (which features Japanese sex siren Aoyama Chikako, who hasn't been seen much since Robotrix in 1991) and the sets (borrowed from Au Revoir Mon Amour, also 1991) alone indicate that the movie was made over two years ago and has been sitting on the shelf ever since. Having seen the film, it's not hard to guess why. Actually there are elements there for an amusing comedy-drama. Set some 50 or 60 years ago (one is never quite sure of the exact era), the film casts former disc jockey Lawrence Cheng as an announcer on the old Rediffusion Radio station. As often happensto leading men in Cantonese movies, he gets involved with a beautiful ghost (Nonie Tao) who roams the streets in an effort to avenge her death at the hands of her ne'er-do-well husband (David Ng) and his mistress (Aoyama Chikako). Cheng tells the ghost's tragic story on his radio show, thus beginning a series of lengthy flashbacks that have the on-screen audiences enthralled. For those of us off-screen, though, aside from the flashbacks and the few amusing antics inside the radio station, the film is a very ordinary love triangle that, had it indeed been a radio programme, it would probably have been cancelled after the first instalment.
