MADE IN HONG KONG
Directed by Fruit Chan Gor
Lee plays Moon, a high-school dropout and small-time hoodlum who resents his absentee father and his succession of mistresses from China. Moon is friends with the half-witted Sylvester (Wenders Li Tung-chuen) and harbours puppy love for the severely ill Ping (Neiky Yim Hui-chi), but none of them is enlivened by these feelings.
MADE IN HONG KONG forms the first part of Fruit Chan Gor’s “1997 Trilogy” – whose other components are THE LONGEST SUMMER and LITTLE CHEUNG– and is shot with a rawness and urgency that would in time become the writer-director’s signature.
