The late great comedic duo of Lydia Shum and Bill Tung brought many laughs to Hong Kong in the 1980s and 90s with feisty family comedies like It's a Mad Mad World, Double Fattiness, and 1989's Lost Souls. This hilarious supernatural comedy serves up double doses of local humor and sitcom slapstick as only Hong Kong films can, while also making wry commentary about the migration trend of the time. Lost Souls is directed by David Lai and co-stars David Wu, Sheila Chan, Lawrence Ng, Mark Cheng, Lowell Lo, and Wu Ma. Like many Hong Kong people, the Ling family are hoping to immigrate to Canada - but then they all die in a gas poisoning accident. Something wimpy like dying isn't going to stop them from their Canadian dreams, but it turns out migrating in the next life takes money, too. In order to raise funds to head west, the Lings return to the mortal world and get to work making money through various jobs, raising plenty of hilarious havoc and misunderstandings along the way.
