Synopsis by Mark Deming
Ghosts haunt a block of Hong Kong flats as one guy becomes aware of their presence in this horror comedy from director David Lee. Nam (Steven Cheung) is a high school student whose friends have been dying at an alarming rate, as three having taken their own lives within a few months. But the suicides have also led Nam to a remarkable discovery -- he can see and hear the spirits of the dead, and he now finds himself talking with his late buddies on a regular basis. While Chee (Yee Tong), a beautiful flight attending living in the same apartment building, has been occupying Nam's thoughts lately, the growing number of ghosts that are wandering the hallways has become a powerful distraction, and when both Chee and Nam's brother Tung (Yu Gu) start acting in a very peculiar manner, he becomes convinced something out of the supernaturally ordinary is going on in his hometown. Ngok Nam Shi Kin (aka Yes, I Can See Dead People) received its North American premiere as a special midnight attraction at the 2009 Seattle International Film Festival.
