Film Season

It’s been very remiss of me not to mention the three big do’s going on very soon in Hong Kong, film-wise.

Going to work today I were confronted wi a rather lovely picture of one Mr Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (梁朝偉) posing fert HK Entertainment Expo ads. Plastered all over’t MTR stations and buses alike, they’re really going to town plugging this one. And so they should. It’s basically a showcase fer all things to do wi HK films, including new-fangled stuff like digital film and suchlike.

Then, of course, we have the HK Film Festival itself, a gathering of films from overseas and HK, all in three weeks of back-to-back presentations and general film-frenzy. Bloody marvellous. This was where I saw the Italian film ‘My Mother’s Smile’ and the Scottish one ‘Sweet Sixteen’, among too many others to name. An excellent time has been had by all, fert past four years I’ve been here.

Last but by no means least are the HK Film Awards. At last! Very pleased to announce that Mr Aaron Kwok’s latest accolade-fest, ‘After This, Our Exile’ has been nominated in no less than ten categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Aaron Kwok, of course), Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best New Performer, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing and Best Art Direction. Red curtains and carpets go up and out on April 15th at the Hung Hom Coliseum…

And if one more person tries to be helpful and patiently explains that I should be happy that some bastard re-write of ‘Infernal Affairs’ won at the American Oscars this year, I’ll quite happily kick seven shades of shit out of them.

I. Will. Not. Go. There. Again.

That’s it. Soopytwist...
