Peter Ho-Sun Chan's He's a Woman, She's a Man

Lisa Odham Stokes


This raucous, gender-stretching comedy follows the disruptions of a glamorous Hong Kong music couple's tumultuous romance by an “ordinary” fan's noisy arrival in their lives. With great comic story development, the film confronts social stereotypes of masculine females, male anxieties about homosexuality, and the limits of male femininity.

Keywords: gender-stretching comedy, Hong Kong, social stereotypes, masculine females, homosexuality, male femininity
