Do any of you remember watching a Hong Kong movie in the late 1980s wherein a girl robot is the lead and doesn't know how to whistle? I remember watching it with my dad in the theaters when I was 4 or 5.
I've been searching for the title of this movie since I was in high school. I have vivid memories of most of the scenes but I really cannot recall the title. Well thanks to Tonyo, I finally found the movie online. He gave me a website of superhero movies and tada! I immediately found the movie in the HK/China section XD
The movie's title is I Love Maria (a.k.a. RoboForce) starring no other than the legendary director Hark Tsui and Hong Kong Pop Queen Sally Yeh.
Director : Chung Chi Man
