A very good classic HK movie in the 80's where gather 3 famous female celebrities during that time in this movie - Bridget, Sally & Cherie... The movie has been nominated in 6 categories in the HK films awards including Best Actress (Sally Yeh), Best Supporting Actor (Paul Chun) & etc... The storyline is very intersting and of coz the acting of all of them also played an important part in making this movie a success :)
