First there was the Yang Generals.
Now there is the First Family!
7 maidens try to protect the emperor from his assassins. But they soon find themselves in peril when the tables are turned on them.
First Family parodies the patriotic tale of the female generals and campy 70s’ Hong Kong Kungfu cinema.
Expect irreverently funny Kungfu sequences and an amazing use of shadow puppetry incorporated into the action. Funny and yet bittersweet, this pugilistic drama is the theatrical event you cannot miss in 2006!
