Sexy girl apparently going through something big in an attractive package for 18+ audiences only sums it up better but that isn't much of a compliment either. It ends not on a light note but one that just overemphasizes the character-journey in my view. That's a minor complaint and most of the time they remain error free. It all forces Ivy to go on a journey of self discovery and hopefully not self destruction. Audio: Cantonese Dolby Digital 2. There's little bloodshed for the most part, only brief nudity for the male fans but combine Chan Wing Chiu's a sure hand direction, good use of sparse locations, camerawork to bring out that tension and you have a surprise hit from a director that quickly left the scene. It all goes to hell from this point but not in a bad way for the film.
Wong seemed like a friend just visiting at first but slowly we discover how messed up in the head he was and why he's doing this there's actually a very fascinating story behind everything and you question who the bad guy truly is in the grand scheme of things. That's what the script says but none of the emotions, big or small show up on screen and the title Emotional Girl obviously is very misleading. Sam is first a bit of a buffoon but soon switches into the methodic, sadist character that he's become after harm was done to him. Her husband Jack Anthony Chan , a heart specialist, has to go out of town for this period of time and while the maid is also away, Sam Anthony Wong will enter Miss Ng's life. Engaging in a relationship not bothering the daughter, the couple realize they're only close when together and way different apart and when with other people. Emotional Girl screams to be a thoughtful surprise but also a graphic, shameless piece of bonk-a-thon trying to dress itself up in intelligence. The script by So Man Sing doesn't surprise too many times but manages to be not as predictable as you would think.
There's one scene that is also Veronica Yip's finest where she finally has her breakdown but has to pick herself up again using her mother's advice given to her at some point in her life previously. On the other hand, I feel those sides to him probably were there before, they were just triggered by key events that you'll come to know about during the course of the film. Some events that occur seems to play fast and loose with time also. All without resorting to the all the common overuse of colour choices such as blue or green. His second reveals something odd and perhaps sinister.
It's a short film so leading up to our first encounter between Miss Ng and Sam doesn't take long and by dropping in hints of his psycho behaviour, Chan doesn't get us on the edge of our seat actually. Despite lack of anamorphic enhancement, the print used is actually remastered, something which is a rare treat for such an obscure flick. It's a relationship where the flame has burnt out but young Ivy and older Stephen are drawn to each other. When her husband a rich doctor is going somewhere away for work, Anthony Wong greatest Hong Kong actor ever. Director of photography Tam Chi Wai C'est La Vie, Mon Cheri uses a very natural palette and even creates some of the darker moments in pure daylight while also doing good work for the night scenes. This also takes place in one shot which is always admirable. Especially so since we get no background to what led to the stale status between her and Stephen.
Only extra is the trailer for the feature at hand. He instead does that with probably the most frightening scene in the film taking place in a shower where the vulnerability of Miss Ng is at its highest. Playing the sex crazy girlfriend Stephen is tired of, even when she's climbing over him literally, you actually feel sympathy for her as she's essentially excluded and bullied in quite the mean way as the film goes on. Kudos for going against audience expectations lack of extensive sex but mainly the 'twist' that Ng Suet-Man encourages the romance between best friend and father and evoking interest in the erotic build up between Ivy and Stephen, it's worth going into Julie Lee's supporting role as well. Backed by a solid producing team consisting of Call Girl 92 and Victory director Andy Chin and lethal to surprisingly worthwhile director of the women's drama Right Here Waiting. His simple tale has not the greatest depth but surprises at times on a script level while the leads puts in strong performances. Day scenes are a bit too bright and black levels could've been better though.
He writes an arc for Miss Ng that is far from what you would call a scream queen. The script certainly doesn't make Sam sympathetic however. He's a pure sadist but does have reasons for what he's doing. You see that a lot in Hong Kong movies. The script does feature some bad guy movie clichés towards the end and the final scene is a terrible tag on, an afterthought that should've been cut from the film. Those looking for these efforts in Hong Kong cinema may find a new, small favourite with this film. .
Out of the trio, this is my second go with Chan's filmmaking and while you applaud the professional nature and fair thoughtfulness to Emotional Girl also known under the extended title Emotional Girl - Doubt of Distress , it's also an uneventful character journey. The manner in which he takes out his anger, frustration and revenge obviously isn't valid though. While clearly shot on a lower budget and not being the best Hong Kong movie out there technically, our director overcomes that hindrance and delivers good suspense. So Man Sing takes Miss Ng through hell and it's inevitable that some sort of monster will awake in her even in the midst of all this. She's actually so vulnerable that she acts rather frozen in fear but can still think clearly. Anthony Wong have created a few distinct psycho characters on screen and this ranks as probably the most memorable alongside his nasty, dirty turn in Ebola Syndrome. After an eye operation, Miss Ng Veronica Yip will undergo temporarily blindness for 3 days.
Welcome to website content copyright infringement is illegal and unhealthy behaviors for monitoring and reporting. The girl's blindness makes her easy to torture and hold captive so Wong's insanity is even more threatening, lots of surprises and twists you'll have never seen coming. Ivy and Stephen work as a couple leading up to the getting physical moment but not much heat or emotions can be gathered after this point, by design Their obvious differences as a fragile, young woman and scared adult are obvious his status in the world of real estate means Ivy is very much an outside element and structurally it's kind of surprising to see Ivy taking a separate journey into a different film almost by the latter stages. The English subtitles comes with a few errors and strangely structured sentences. The strength that 3 Days Of A Blind Girl in the end generates comes not only from the crew's work but certainly from the main cast as well. Seeing as Alfred himself acted in My Americanize Wife, another movie Chan assisted in the directing of, he probably felt comfortable enough to support Chan by producing 3 Days Of A Blind Girl.
A few shots look grainy but I do believe that is due to slow motion being created in post-production on shots taken at 24 frames per second. As mentioned, she's not the classic scream queen at all and manages to inject power into her character even if she's left helpless for most of the time. Print damage is light and colours are unexpectedly good. However, mainly in the first half of 3 Days Of A Blind Girl, it feels like director Chan Wing Chiu is at certain moment shooting angles of Veronica Yip just so the male audiences can turn on the drool. There's nothing wrong with showcasing Yip as she is a very beautiful woman but the director is very much giving away a hidden agenda here. Not necessarily through the terror inflicted on her but rather the truths revealed along the way.
The unsuspecting girl had no idea what Wong's depraved character was doing as he stood right behind her naked wet body. Gotta achieve maturity, drop insecurities and approach the world with feet firmly planted on the ground. Traditional and simplified Chinese subtitles are also included. His first visit begins friendly enough and he leaves shortly after. Subtitles: English, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese. His third begins 72 hours of terror. In particular how quickly Sam has prepared the special dinner for Miss Ng, also one of the most horrible scenes in the film.
