In Australian cinemas this week is a bit of a change of pace from Hong Kong director Edmond Pang Ho-cheung, after 2012’s adult-film industry comedy Vulgaria. His newest film Aberdeen is a quieter family “dramedy” — I still find it hard to type that particular term — focusing on the ups and downs of a typical Hong Kong family.
It’s got a killer cast of HK veterans, starting with Louis Koo, Eric Tsang, Miriam Yeung, Gigi Leung, Ng Man-tat and Carrie Ng… and with Pang behind the script and the camera I’ve no doubt it’ll be well worth catching. Variety’s review is here.
The film opens May 8 across the country, and you can find screening details over at distributor Magnum Films’ website.
Here’s a trailer:
