Floating City

Director:Yim Ho
Cast:Aaron Kwok | Charlie Yeung | Paw Hee Ching | Annie Liu

One of the pioneers of the Hong Kong Cinema New Wave, renowned filmmaker Yim Ho (Red Dust and Homecoming) has not been very prolific lately, but his latest work confirms that he still has a voice that matters. Based on the true stories of two fishermen-turned-tycoons, Yim’s ambitious new offering sketches a retrospective tale spanning decades of a man’s rise to prominence against the ups and downs of the changing times. Charismatic leading man Aaron Kwok (Love for Life) wins applause as the protagonist opposite actresses Charlie Young (After This Our Exile), Annie Liu (Exodus), Josie Ho (Dream Home), and Paw Hee Ching (The Way We Are). The epic-scoped Floating City strikes a chord especially with the Hong Kong people as it talks about their glorious success and identity crisis, but any audience looking for a nostalgic human drama that is both touching and inspiring will also find easy resonance.

In the early 1990s, Bo Wah Chuen (Aaron Kwok), merely 40 years old, has already been promoted to the top management position of the British East India Company in Hong Kong, then a crown colony. Looking back over his beginning, he was raised in a poor, boat-dwelling family of Tanka fishermen – although he doesn’t look anything like pure Chinese – and had not received proper education until he reached adulthood. Coming from such humble background, Chuen was met with a great deal of ridicule and discrimination due to class and racial biases. But through his own hard work, the lowly office assistant strove to climb up the ranks and eventually became the multinational trading giant’s first ever Chinese taipan. Still, despite his extraordinary achievements, Chuen is confused where his root truly lies…
