Behind The Yellow Line Behind The Yellow Line Behind The Yellow Line Behind The Yellow Line


BEHIND THE YELLOW LINE has more new stars on the verge of superstellar careers than virtually any other Hong Kong drama. Maggie Cheung Man-yuk, who the year before was named 1st Runner Up in the Miss Hong Kong Beauty Pageant, is Monica, a 20-year-old involved with her married boss. At the Hong Kong subway station, where a safety announcement warns passengers to stand "behind the yellow line," she meets young civil servant Leslie Cheung, leading to a romance that shows the stars at their youthful best. Anita Mui Yim-fong, in one of her first major roles, won the Hong Kong Film Awards for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as a rich girl who tries to win Leslie's affections by every means at her disposal. The scriptwriters include Gordon Chan, destined to become Hong Kong's number one writer-director (with credits including Stephen Chow's FIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL and Jackie Chan's HIGHBINDERS). BEHIND THE YELLOW LINE's Chinese title means "destiny," and provides an entertaining forecast of the great things in store for its fresh team in front of and behind the camera.
