Our Time Will Come

(明月幾時有)
 
Synopsis:

"Hui has delivered a mellow, slow-burning piece filled with reflections on her favorite topics of cultural dislocation, identity politics and maternal bonds." - The Hollywood Reporter

"The film is a beautifully mounted and emotionally engaging piece." - The Hollywood Reporter

Based on an incredible true story, “Our Time Will Come” is a riveting drama featuring a star-studded cast which includes Zhou Xun, Eddie Peng, Wallace Huo, Deanie Ip, Tony Leung Ka-fai, Guo Tao and Ivana Wong. Tracing the story of the famous Dongjiang guerilla unit, the film vividly brings 1940s Hong Kong back to life, the result of intricate and detailed research by director Ann Hui and her team.

In 1941, Hong Kong is under Japanese control. The three-year-and-eight-month occupation transforms Hong Kong from a prosperous city into a barren land with little food or water. Primary school teacher, Fang Lan (Zhou) and her mother (Ip) are trying to live out this difficult period in a small, run-down flat in Wanchai. After the schools are shut down, Lan, who recently broke up with Wing (Huo), unwittingly finds herself embroiled in the guerillas’ mission to save novelist Mao Dun (Tao). In the process, she meets Blackie Lau (Peng), the intrepid sharpshooter captain of the guerillas’ Urban and Firearms Unit. Taking notice of Lan’s calm, intelligent nature, Blackie recruits her to join the guerillas.
 
Lan sets up a secret liaison point for the resistance fighters and soon becomes involved in the smuggling of intellectuals and artists from the city under the watchful eyes of the Japanese military. Worried for her daughter’s safety, Lan’s mother volunteers to take Lan’s place as a courier, only to be arrested on the job. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Wing, who now works for the Japanese.

Wine War

(搶紅)
 
Synopsis:

Drama and high-stakes intrigue ensue in this movie helmed by renowned Hong Kong actor and singer Leon Lai, who tries his hand at directing his first action film. The star-studded cast includes Best Actor Zhang Hanyu, supermodel and actress Du Juan, Taiwanese actor David Wang and model-actor Nan Fulong from Tianjin.

Shui Zhang (Zhang Hanyu) and Waley (Leon Lai) were buddies at an orphanage. Adopted by a French couple and having moved to France at a young age, Waley has become a world-renowned sommelier. Left alone in China, Shui Zhang grew up to be a braggart and a nobody. When Shui Zhang travels to France one day to enlist Waley's help in auctioning a bottle of red wine called "The God of Wine," said to contain Kublai Khan's secret wine-brewing recipe, Waley accepts the challenge immediately. During the auction, Waley encounters a representative from the seller, the beautiful Yvonne (Du Juan), and falls in love with her at first sight. Meanwhile, the other potential buyer is the wealthy and imposing coal tycoon, Changfang Fang (David Wang). While he appears to be a rich and vulgar brute on the surface, there is much more to him than meets the eye. The intrigue increases when Fang discovers he is being followed by a private connoisseur of suspicious origins. Much to Waley's surprise, Zhang and Fang seem also to be sharing secrets between themselves. Little does Waley realize that he is being drawn into an age-old feud between rival vineyards, as well as an industry-shattering mystery of historical proportions, dating back to the Tang dynasty.
