29 + 1 Storyline

This is a story in 2005. Christy Lam is a typical city girl born and raised in Hong Kong. She is a month from turning 30, and has just begun to cope with the same struggles shared by most girls of the same age: the almost unbearable stress at work, her aging but annoying parents, and her seemingly stable yet stagnant relationship. All of these only add to her fear for this next chapter of her life. Wong Tin-Lok, on the other hand, is also turning 30 soon, but leads a vastly different life. She has never been in love, and her job is taking her nowhere. And yet, she has always kept an optimistic attitude towards life. On the verge of her next chapter, she makes a bold decision to just pick up her bags and fulfill her childhood dream. They have never met each other, and their personalities are night and day. But as fate would have it, Christy makes a temporary move into Wong’s apartment. Through exploring Wong’s diary, Christy not only discovers that they share the same birthday, but also learns about the bits and pieces of Wong’s life. As their virtual bond grows, Christy begins to appreciate Wong’s alternate approach to life, so much so that it becomes an integral part of Christy’s own. Who has entered whose world? Director Kearen Pang has skilfully adapted her extremely successful stage play, graciously opening her heart to wider audiences in this sensitive, uplifting film.

a mindfulness film

This is a movie that every girl should watch before they turn to the woman stage. you won’t be disappointed if you have experienced any anxiety and failure in your late 20s.This film was adapted from the director’s own solo play, which was a great success in Hong Kong. The film is even better than the play in my opinion because the director gives more dimensions to the two main female lead and the movie setting is much more mature after the eighth re-run of the solo play.

Out of focus

I think a movie is quite different from a stage drama. For the latter I expect a stronger storyline with a more stronger character leading in the story. In the present movie the focus is however shifting between Chirsty and Joyce, from time to time. I would rather the director give me more hint that she is telling two stories in one movie starting from the beginning.

I appreciate the effort of the director in giving her best. House of Joyce is decorated in a way showing the character of Joyce, especially the tower wall. Costume of female lead fits her character too.

I hope you would make more movie-like movies.

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

Chrissie Chau is going to celebrate her 30th birthday in a month, and life couldn’t be better. She is a liberated woman with a handsome boy friend and she has just gotten a major promotion at work. Why is she so stressed out and why is her life collapsing around her? When her landlord sells her apartment and forces her to move to a month-to-month, who is Joyce Cheng. the woman who is exactly her age and has built an Eiffel Tower on the wall of her apartment?

This well-composed film tackles the issues of thinking you know what you want to do with your life when you’re 18, and the choices you make: not bad choices, but choices that turn out to be unsuitable when you’re a dozen years older. With a series of well-performed characters, it offers us the truism that happiness lies somewhere between the aimlessness of living in the moment and the constriction of making lifelong decisions, as Miss Chau and Miss Cheng find their lives destroyed by factors outside their control. It’s been adapted very nicely from its original stage presentation, with some nice camera-work by Jason Kwan. Mostly, though, it’s Kearan Pang’s vision that controls, and produces a fine movie.
