DIM SUM: INSEPARABLE [XING YING BU LI | 形影不离]

2010/08/13

I am not a big fan of Chinese-Western collaboration movies, but maybe INSEPARABLE turns out better than usual. A young man is going through a difficult time in his life, encountering problems at work as much as at home with his wife. All that changes when he meets a mysterious foreigner who has not just a little impact on Li’s life. INSEPARABLE is directed by Dayyan Eng and stars the fabulous Kevin Spacey alongside Daniel Wu, Beibi Gong, Ni Yan, Peter Stormare, Kenneth Tsang and Mo Zhang.

DIM SUM: LA COMEDIE HUMAINE a.k.a. THE HUMAN COMEDY [YAN GAAN HEI KAT | 人間喜劇]

Fans of cantonese comedy should be enjoying LA COMEDIE HUMAINE, Chan Hing-Sa’s surreal buddy movie about a mainland hitman and a Hong Kong screenwriter. Disregard the fact that you’ll need to embrace its very special pace and humor, and need to look the other way when it comes to its many flaws, LA COMEDIE HUMAINE stands out as one of the more memorable – and likeable – Hong Kong films this year.

Co-directed by Janet Chun Siu-Jan, starring Chapman To Man-Chat, Wong Cho-Sam, Hui Siu-Hung, Fiona Sit Hoi-Kei, Kama, Lee Lik-Chee, C. Kwan, Maggie Li, Tsui Tin-Yau, Wong Yau-Nam, Law Wing-Cheong, Soi Cheang Pou-Soi, Carl Ng Ka-Lung and Derek Kwok Chi-Kin.

DIM SUM: THE LEGEND IS BORN – IP MAN a.k.a. YOUNG IP MAN [YE WEN QIAN ZHUAN | 葉問前傳]

UPDATE: READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE! – – – – – – – – – It seems the IP MAN story is still in fashion with another movie about the master coming up:  THE LEGEND IS BORN – IP MAN (a.k.a. THE YOUNG IP MAN) is about the early years of Ip Man (so again – NO Bruce Lee in here) and stars Sammo Hung, Yu-Hang To, Biao Yuen and Siu-Wong Fan. Directed by Herman Yau, so we consequently expect the usual Yau take on the subject (Wong Kar Wai, are you still pursuing your IP MAN project?).
