Two Wrongs Make A Right

(天生不對)

 
Synopsis:

“Two Wrongs Make A Right” is the first Chinese romantic comedy that has a fortune telling, Feng Shui and numerology setting. Written and directed by Vincent Kok (“House of Wolves”, 2016), the story is about a Feng Shui master (played by Vic Chou; “S Storm”, 2016”) who originally has a bad intention of using an ill-fated girl (played by Fiona Sit; “Insanity”, 2015) to shield his misfortunes. He eventually falls in love with the girl although their conflicting fates lead to a series of unfortunate events. The girl is actually a part of his rival’s (played by Ronald Cheng; “House of Wolves”, 2016) evil scheme.


When the internationally-renowned Feng Shui Master Ray (Vic Chou) forecasts a predestined misfortune, he finds an ill-fated wretch Pei Pei (Fiona Sit) with the hope that she will ward off the mishaps for him. While everything seems to be under his calculation, Ray does not foresee that he would eventually fall in love with Pei Pei. Little does Ray know that Pei Pei is actually part of Feng Shui Master Ximen’s (Ronald Cheng) evil scheme as Ray and Pei Pei’s numerology istotally incompatible, which means their relationship will only lead to a series of unfortunate events.

Synopsis:

Roy Szeto presents a comedy drama based on the play "Nukegara" by Norihiko Tsukuda. The film, which began as an award-winning Hong Kong stage adaptation of the story, was shown at the Udine Far East Film Festival 2017. Headlining the quirky laffer is Hong Kong favourite Louis Koo as a film director undergoing a series of crises in life alongside Francis Ng, who was nominated for Best Actor at the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards for his demanding role as a man who experiences reverse aging.  

Troubles keep piling up for washed-out movie director Tian Lik-hang (Koo). His wife wants a divorce, his film company has gone bankrupt and his mother has died. On top of this, he must now take care of his 79-year-old dementia-ridden father, Yat-hung (Ng).

In the midst of his struggles, his father starts shedding skin and each day it occurs, Yat-hung looks ten years younger. With the age difference between father and son decreasing, Lik-hang and Yat-hung grow closer. They spend more time together, hanging out at a football stadium they used to frequent and Yat-hung even helping frighten off thugs who corner Lik-hang over debts. 

As time passes, Lik-hang gets to know a father he had forgotten, one who struggled to make a better life for his family.  And with this deeper understanding, he reflects on his own career, marriage and family with a newfound passion.
