Technical Specs


Did You Know?

The title 'Chiang Jang 7 hao' literally means "Yangtze River Steamer 7". Basically a river boat on the Yangtze.

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When the Dad is cutting the rotten part of the apple, he is cutting with the wrong side of the knife.

Dicky: Good morning, sir.
Mr. Cao: Dicky Chow! Just look at yourself. You're covered in dirt.
Dicky: [stepping forward] I just...
Mr. Cao: [stepping back] Don't move. And don't give me the usual routine. Why are you always so untidy?
Miss Yuen: What's the matter, Mr. Cao?
Mr. Cao: [to Dicky] Explain yourself!
Miss Yuen: Let me talk to him. Where did the dirt come from, Dicky?
Dicky: Well, on my way to school, I slipped and fell over.
Miss Yuen: Don't your mom or dad bring you to school?

User Review


Rating: 8/10

This is a very good movie. I have laughed out loud and cried real tears, and that doesn't happen often! There are elements in the movie like in Shaolin Soccer, and it has some of Gremlins. Not everything that happens is possible (like in Shaolin Soccer), but that doesn't disturb the slightest, on the contrary, it's very funny. The young boy is a very good actor; amazingly so (he appears to be at most 10 years old). If anything is wrong with movie then it's that it's too short. I wish it was twice as long! I can highly recommend to watch this with children, but don't let them watch alone, as it contains a very sad scene that might need some hugging to get through.
