But, Brigitte's pre-HK films back then were mostly weepy, sad melodramas and nothing like the gender-blender or fantasy characters she would play in the 90's. During the 1970's she performed in a large number of sudsy/weepy little dramas that have a little bit of comedy, some smaltzy music (which I must admit to having developed a weakness for), human drama and often a fair share of heartbreak. On some occasions all ends on a bleak tragic note, while at other times all the issues of love are resolved for a happy ever after ending. I think the audience for these films was likely lonely housewives and adolescent girls – who would sit in the dark theaters and cry their eyes out whenever Brigitte would have her heart broken yet once again.
I remember those. As a child, anything goes. :lol?:
But if you ask me to watch them now, I wouldn't because they're not up my alley. :lol?: Weepy & soppy shows/soaps (why why do they call them soaps???) are not my cup of tea.
I only like & collect the movies (non romance) she acted in. Come to think of it, they're mostly wuxia with a few that's not.
And she was ill-used in one of them. Which one was that? The Three Swordsmen. I was wondering what the heck was going on when I watched that. It was a mess from beginning to the end. The blooming premise sounded good but the director lost the plot. Plot holes everywhere, bad jumpy sequences, lighting & editing. And she didn't do much except to speak a few lines, looked serious, puzzled, contemptuous, angry, worried & stood around! I found myself looking for her in the background, half wondering if she was shaking a leg or something. Luan zao zao.
She should have done this to the director ----->
