Panorama are bringing the 1995 Hong Kong comedy ‘The Saint of Gamblers’ (賭聖2：街頭賭聖) to Hong Kong Blu-ray and DVD on January 29, 2021.
Written and directed by Wong Jing, the film finds Uncle Tat uncovering a new gambling sensation in the form of a dim-witted mainlander. The cast includes Eric Kot, Chingmy Yau, Ng Man-Tat, Diana Pang, Ben Lam, and Ashton Chen.
Synopsis: When Uncle Tat (Ng Man-Tat) senses the need for a new Saint of Gamblers, his search leads him to God Bless You (Eric Kot), a wacky, super-powered mainlander whose unrefined ways make him out-of-place in Hong Kong – and an absolute terror to the gambling world! With the World Gambling Contest approaching, the various players prepare for the competition. But can anything prepare anyone for God Bless You?
