description

As a "mahjong-oriented" movie, "Fat Choi Spirit" successfully becomes a comedy not only giving the audience a great laugh, but also a realistic reflection of the economic situation of Hong Kong and the sentiments of general public. Andy (Andy Lau), like many Hong Kong people, has a roller-coaster-like life due to his love with mahjong. However, also because of mahjong, he gains back his family and the love of his life. Combining reality with humorous fantasy, this movie, though earthliness, teaches the audience how to overcome adversity with hope and love in this difficult times.

One of the best mahjong movies there is
Fat Choi Spirit is a different thing than series like Akagi. It's a comedy about a man who loves mahjong and doesn't care if he loses or wins; it's just a game. However, this man has incredible luck and wins big time almost every time. Things start to get wrong when his lover / stalker curses him...
Ok, that description doesn't make any justice to the plot. The actors are great, the video quality is good and sound quality is superb. The subtitles aren't the best of the bunch, but still coherent enough. This is, after all, a Hong Kong World Wide release. However, I feel that deducting one star because of this is in place.
I can't recommend this film enough if you're a mahjong player. Those who play solely riichi may want to stay away from this movie. Those who openly accept all other forms of mahjong should see that this film gets in their collection.
It's just that good of a comedy.
