Lost In Hong Kong/港囧

Xu Zheng the director wants to repeat his success in his last "Lost in Thailand", i.e., the midlife crisis under the pressure of his life, his love memory, or so. However, he wants to tell too many stories to fabricate a comedy, but too many ingredients/materials do not make a good soup. Xu tried his best to balance various story lines, but this routine seems not so successful as in "Lost in Thailand".

Frankly, I don't think this is a comedy, it is kind of serious drama, just coated like a comedy, rather than a comedy. The leading role by Xu Zheng is struggling for his life: he is the lowest in his family, his dream of being an artiest failed, he has the pressure of bearing a baby, etc., he has everything pressure but something relaxing. To find his first love in Hong Kong is a metaphor for him to reconcile with himself, to relax himself, even for a short while.

The last part of the three leading roles standing in the glass is a metaphor too. The mid-aged man has to balance his first love (his dreaming life) and his family (his practical life). Because this is a comedy so the balance is easily reconciled on the screen, but in real life there are few men who can easily solve this problem.

It's a surprise to see so many Hong Kong movie stars here, including lots of shining stars at the age of 1980's to 1990's, who are one of the best parts of my memory to Hong Kong movie. So glad to meet with them here and enjoy the old Hong Kong movie songs.
