Spiritually, A Cop (1991) Yukari Oshima + Elaine Lui
Spiritually, A Cop (1991) Yukari Oshima + Elaine Lui

Yukari Oshima with Elaine Lui

original Hong Kong/Chinese title BOK GEUK CHA LOU [Green Ghost Detective]

director: Wai Shum
starring: Yukari Oshima Stanley Fung Fong Lui Hoi Mang Michael Chan Elaine Lui


Pop singer Fong Lui plays a young man who wants to be a Hong Kong police officer but is too short to qualify. However, Lu doesn't let that stop him. He goes around impersonating an officer, investigating crimes and busting criminals. One day, he interrupts a bank robbery (by three men in drag) and gets shot in the process. Lu dies. When the case is assigned to a female investigator [played by Oshima], he returns as a ghost to lend a hand at solving the robbery. Then, inexplicably, the quirky plot gets sidetracked to a different direction with the entrance of bad-ass diva Elaine Lui, seemingly an arch-enemy of Yukari Oshima. The two provide an exhilarating [if not unexpected] finale that has little to do with the foregoing plot.

Filmmaker Wai Shum seems to be over-his-head here. He directed only a couple movies (most notably KICKBOXER'S TEARS). He was better known as an actor, featured in 80+ films including STONE AGE WARRIORS [which, incidentally also starred Elaine Lui] and various Jackie Chan vehicles.
