We have a contest for our Film Smash readers, courtesy of Well Go USA! Street Date on August 20th
Three lucky members can win this.
Based on the true story of a Hong Kong businessman (Aaron Kwok) who learns about his mysterious roots, the thoughtful drama FLOATING CITY debuts on Digital, Blu-ray™ and DVD August 20th from Well Go USA Entertainment. Pioneering Hong Kong New Wave auteur Yim Ho (Homecoming, Red Desert) returns to filmmaking with a sweeping social-historical drama set against the backdrop of the British-colonized harbor that is still known today as “the Floating Village.” The film stars Aaron Kwok (The Storm Riders), Charlie Yeung (Bangkok Dangerous, Sleepwalker), Nina Paw (Reign of Assassins, Fearless), Josie Ho (Contagion, The Courier), and Annie Liu (Natural Born Lovers).
In the early 1990s, Bo Wah Chuen (Aaron Kwok) attracts great attention as a business executive in the Imperial East India Company of Hong Kong, his prominence overshadowing even that of his British superiors. However, twenty years ago, when he takes the company’s entry test, all he has to show for himself is the plea, “I could read and write.” His rise to prominence has as much to do with the British imminent return of Hong Kong to China, as it has to do with his considerable ability. To the astonishment of many, Bo Wah Chuen looks nothing like a Chinese. As a child, he has to endure much jeering as he looks nothing like his six siblings. People are amazed at the sight of a Caucasian looking fisherman in colonial Hong Kong. Though he is desperate to discover the origin of his peculiar features, every time he asks his parents, all he could get out of them is a good beating.
FLOATING CITY has a runtime of approximately 105 minutes and is not rated.
