Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame
(Hong Kong, 2010, 106 mins)
In Mandarin and Spanish with English subtitles
The giant Buddha statue commemorating the coronation of China’s first female emperor is nearly finished and everything is on track for a grand ceremony when state officials suddenly start spontaneously combusting. Could the Empress be the next target? In prison for treason, Detective Dee has seen better days, but even the Empress knows he’s the only one who can solve the mystery of the phantom flame.
