Film Review: Chicken and Duck Talk (1988) - Hong Kong

Chicken and Duck Talk (1988) - Hong Kong Reviewed by Andrew ChanChicken and Duck Talk remains a true Hong Kong cultural experience and a defining moment of change required during the east meets west period.

Film Review: Floating City (2012) - Hong Kong

Floating City (2012) - Hong Kong  80s New Wave veteran director Yim Ho's 13th film is a flawed, but appreciated look at Hong Kong history through the rise of a mixed half-breed British-Hong Kong man from the Tanka fishing village to the top executive in a White dominated British East India Company prior to the 1997 handover. Political undertones are obvious, but at its core it is about change, exploration and a rare modern film highlighting this historical insight of Hong Kong people. Director Ho stays true to his persona style of telling social stories and portrayal of human characters....
