Miracles (Mr. Canton & Lady Rose)
Ji Ji | Jackie Chan, 1989
Hong Kong | Cantonese with English Subtitles | 127 minutes

If you ask Jackie Chan which movie he’s most proud of directing, he always names this shimmering 1920s gangster fantasia, a remake of Frank Capra’s
Lady for a Day set in a storybook Hong Kong that recalls Damon Runyon’s New York. Chan plays a nice-guy country bumpkin who inherits the top crime
king position from a dying mafia boss. With the fast feet, quick quips, and sudden reversals of Hollywood’s great screwball comedies, it also features a diva turn by pop star Anita Mui, Hong Kong’s answer to Madonna, except she can actually act.
