Product description

Product Description

First Love: Litter on the Breeze In the early 90s, cult flmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fellow Hong Kong director Jeff Lau established Jet Tone Films, an independent product company that has been responsible for some of the most remarkable flms to have emerged from the region. Eric Kot Man Fai s directorial debut tells two tales of frst love, before and after. In the frst, Takeshi Kaneshiro (Chungking Express) stars as a garbage man who falls in love with a sleepwalking young woman (Lee Wai-Wai). The second is about a convenience store owner (Eric Kot Man Fai) who is troubled by the return of an old lover whom he jilted years before. Semi-experimental in approach, the flm explores similar themes to Wong s highly visual romantic style whilst also showcasing the director s unique voice and creativity. The Eagle Shooting Heroes In the early 90s, cult flmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fellow Hong Kong director Jeff Lau established Jet Tone Films, an independent production company that has been responsible for some of the most remarkable flms to have emerged from the region. Jeff Lau s flm The Eagle Shooting Heroes is based upon the same famous Louis Cha novel as Wong s own Ashes of Time which was shot concurrently and shares much of the same star-studded cast. A complete subversion of the Wu Xia Pian martial arts genre, Lau s flm is a wickedly funny parody which piles on love triangles, bizarre musical numbers and entertaining action sequences choreographed by Sammo Hung (Enter the Dragon)to create one of Hong Kong cinema s most beloved cult classics. Away with Words In the early 90s, cult flmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fellow Hong Kong director Jeff Lau established Jet Tone Films, an independent production company that has been responsible for some of the most remarkable flms to have emerged from the region, including this directorial debut from Christopher Doyle, the celebrated cinematographer of In the Mood For Love, 2046 and Ashes of Time among many others.Tadanobu Asano (Mongol) plays a drifter who jumps ship from Okinawa looking for solace from the gridlock of memories flling his mind. He winds up in the Dive Bar, where he comes into contact with its similarly disaffected patrons including Susie (Mavis Xu), Georgina (Georgian Dobson) and the gay, alcoholic Australian owner (Kevin Sherlock). With his customary hypnotic visuals, Doyle explores the characters backgrounds and reminiscences both those they struggle to remember and those they cannot forget.
