Made in Hong Kong ★★★★

'Made in Hong Kong' is a film about isolation and youth. It's characters try to make the best of their life but have also given up on taking steps to improve it. This attitude leaves us with bitter-sweet feelings.

The influence of the Hong Kong first wave is clearly visible but also completely transformed to fit the second wave's more realistic style. This combination of fuzzy surrealism and a Cinema Verite storyline helps us to feel like the characters and makes sure we, like them, can't escape the crime filled subsidised housing projects they live in.
