When a young widow arrives in Guangdong to deliver a fought-over deed of inheritance to the rightful heirs, her crotchety nephew by marriage and his westernized son show how age and gender role reversals allow for a wealth of kung fu funny business. Freely mixing martial arts moves with allusions to popular Hollywood genres, My Young Auntie is an unalloyed triumph of martial arts comedy. 1980, Hong Kong, color, 35mm, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 114 minutes.
