My Young Auntie aka Fangs of The Tigress is a 1981 Hong Kong action film from the Shaw Brothers studio. The film is directed by Lau Kar Leung and stars Kara Hui, Hsiao Ho, Wang Lung Wei, and Gordon Liu. In a change from Lau Kar Leung's more serious martial arts films, My Young Auntie is a generally lighthearted kung-fu comedy. Lau Kar Leung again cast Kara Hui in the later Lady Is the Boss, which revisited similar themes. Kara Hui won Best Actress at the first Hong Kong Film Awards for her performance in this film.

Plot[edit]

A young female martial-arts champion, Cheng Tai-nun (Kara Hui) marries an elderly landowner so the old man can keep his estate from falling into the greedy and unscrupulous hands of his brother Yu Yung-Sheng (Wang Lung Wei). Tai-nun inherits his estate when he dies, and is soon in Canton, staying with her older nephew by marriage, Yu Cheng-chuan (Lau Kar Leung), and his son Yu Tao (Hsiao Ho). When the traditional and conservative Tai-nun, a woman from the provinces, runs into the modern and Westernized Yu Tao for the first time, the sparks fly and a clash of egos begins. Meanwhile, the evil brother steals the deed to the dead husband's estate. Tai-nun and Yu Tao go to get the deed back and are beaten and held hostage by Yung-Sheng and his experts. Its then up to Yu Cheng-chuan and his brothers to rescue them.
