Fruit Chan's Directorial Debut
Being Fruit Chan’s directorial debut, Finale In Blood is a mixed bag. The plot and theme are interesting enough: an examination of the tragedy of womanhood in a male-centred society. However, the execution of the story in the finished film is more akin to a conventional, by-the-numbers ghost love story. Chan’s stylistic elements with which he later made a name for himself can be found scattered throughout the film, but are largely still in their infancy and devoid of focused significance. While still eminently watchable, Finale In Blood is not a must-watch film, even for hardened fans of Fruit Chan.

The plot tells the tale of Fong Yan (Winona Tao) who inherits a hotel in Hong Kong and falls for a guest, Ma (David Wu). Ma turns out to be a rather corrupt police officer who frequents the ladies of the night. Despite knowing of his infidelities, Fong eventually marries Ma, holding on to the empty promises of change that he makes. Ma, however, continues to patronise an unnamed prostitute (a scene-stealing Aoyama Chikako), and tragedy develops resulting in Fong becoming a disembodied spirit residing in an umbrella. This is where Lawrence Cheng’s character, Cheng Ming Po, comes in. A bullied disc jockey at Rediffusion, his life is irrevocably change when he gains possession of the umbrella and decides to help Fong’s ghost.
David Chung’s work on this film was nominated in the

Best Cinematography category at the 1994 Hong Kong Film Awards. Visually, the film is pleasing enough, offering glimpses of 1960s Hong Kong that were faithfully recreated. The acting is generally effective, with Lawrence Cheng and Aoyama Chikako succeeding admirably in conveying kind-hearted vulnerability and haughty desperation in their characters, respectively.

This DVD is part of the Legendary Collection from Joysales. Despite being remastered, the picture is very grainy and scratch marks can constantly be seen. I suppose there is only so much they can do with the poor quality of the film print at their disposal. The soundtrack fares much better but is nothing exceptional.
