Funeral March (2001)
is a great, if overlooked, movie. Hong Kong is known for action flicks, gangster flicks, cop flicks, and comedies. I too enjoy a good laugh over many of the vapid romantic comedies, but this movie isn’t that. This movie is great, and interesting, and dramatic, a great examination of the human spirit.
Not too long after this, I realized that Eason Chan (陈奕迅) is a pretty neat musician, and lots of his music is also pretty intriguing and original.
If you have anyway of checking out this movie, I highly recommend it. I saw it back in 2001, which is ancient history today in Hong Kong movies, so I am having trouble tracking it down.
