With the Oscars coming up, Hong Kong cinemas are about to be inundated with big-budget releases (a few months later than the rest of the world saw ‘em, but whatever). We’re wondering what some of these flicks would be like with a Hong Kong twist. The Wife of Pi Pi Chan’s wife loves shopping for designer handbags at Milan Station. On one fateful day, however, she gets cast adrift in the South China Sea. Will the Chinese military rescue her before she has to resort to eating her new Gucci purse to survive? Kwok Bros Unchained After being sprung from prison by their ever-loyal personal assistants, Sun Hung Kai heads Thomas and Raymond Kwok vanish from society and live as bounty hunters on the fringes of the law, hiding out at Noah’s Ark in Ma Wan. During their exile, they hatch a plan to clear their names once and for all—or at least, somehow pin it all on Walter. On The Roof A coming-of-age story about how one Yuen Long villager realizes that the government asking him to remove the illegally built extra story on his 2,000-square-foot village house isn’t actually that unreasonable. In his soul-searching journey, he removes the illegal structure and finds a home for his grandmother in La Sol Paradiso, a housing development in Tai Po. Obviously, this is a complete work of fiction and in no way inspired by actual events. Leungcoln A big-budget biopic of one of the most fascinating leaders in history. CY Leung rose from unlikely beginnings to secure the job of Chief Executive of Hong Kong. Ever the character actor, Leung plays himself in the titular role and has earned an Oscar nod for his convincing portrayal of a living, breathing human being. Les Misérables A two-hour saga following one man’s work commute from Tin Shui Wai to North Point on the day that he forgets his iPhone.
