108' - 1992 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English, Cantonese, Japanese
Director: Clara Law Composer: Lau Yee Tat With: Masatoshi Nagase, Li Piu Wan, Maki Kiuchi, Sun Ching Hung
Macao-barn, London-trained, Kowloon-based Clara Law was the perfect choice to direct this poetic essay on the evanescence of Chinese culture in modern Hang Kong. Japanese actor Masatoshi Nagase, known for his work in Jarmusch' Mystery Train, plays a Tokyo tourist vainly seeking authentic Chinese cooking in Hong Kong, who strikes up a friendship with a gauche Chinese teenager. Her granny is a dynamite cook, and bit by bit the film develops into an off-beat romance between a Japanese and a wok. Fresh, funny, moving and sexy, this is a bitter­sweet tribute to a world that may soon be no more. (London Film Fest 1992)
