Kevin Tsai’s career in film isn’t really huge though it extends as far back as the early 90s having written the action-packed Jet Li hit, Fong Sai Yuk. That was an impressive find as I was looking him up amid the current promotion of his debut fantasy comedy, Didi’s Dreams which has a current limited theatrical running in North America from Cheng Cheng Films.
A hilarious and tearful ode to the golden age of Taiwan variety entertainment, reputed TV host and best-selling author Kevin Tsai’s directorial debut stars his longtime partner Dee Hsu (Little S) in the twelve-year running Kangsi Coming, widely regarded as the most influential TV show in the Chinese speaking world. Didi tries to prove herself a good actress in front of her superstar sister, while Chunmei the owner of a space station noodle shop mourns for her lost love. When these two distinct lives cross paths, where would fate take them?
