Handsome Siblings is a 1992 Hong Kong martial arts film directed by Eric Tsang and produced by Raymond Chow. The movie is based on the classic novel "Juedai Shuangjiao" by Gu Long, and tells the story of two twins who were separated at birth and grew up to be expert fighters on opposite sides of the law. Andy Lau stars as one of the twins, Song Qingfeng, who is brought up by a group of bandits after being separated from his brother, Xiaoyu. Song Qingfeng grows up to be a formidable fighter and becomes the leader of the bandits, known as the "Seven Heroes of Wulin." Meanwhile, Xiaoyu is adopted by a wealthy family and trained in martial arts by his father's servant, Wu Santong.
Things come to a head when the two brothers meet each other as adults and find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict between the "Seven Heroes of Wulin" and the righteous martial arts practitioners led by the beautiful Tie Xinlan (Brigitte Lin). Despite their conflicts, the two brothers find themselves drawn to each other, and start to suspect that they may be related.
As the conflict between the two factions heats up, Song Qingfeng and Xiaoyu must navigate their loyalties and allegiances while fighting off a series of formidable opponents. Along the way, they also discover secrets about their past that could change everything they thought they knew about themselves.
The fight sequences in Handsome Siblings are a highlight of the film, with choreography by legendary action director Ching Siu-tung. The movie also features stunning set pieces and costumes that transport the viewer to a richly imagined world of ancient China.
