Hot Summer Days (Hollywood Reporter review)

Filed under: Reprints — Tags: — dleedlee @ 9:46 am

Hot Summer Days
By Justin Lowe

A surprisingly tone-deaf romantic comedy, “Hot Summer Days” impresses mostly by its lack of genuinely original humor. Although a top box office earner in China earlier this year, Fox International Productions’ first Chinese-language film is unlikely to acquire adherents stateside beyond Chinese-language speakers in major metros and perhaps a somewhat broader audience among the more adventurous on DVD or cable.

Over several weeks of what’s set up as the hottest summer on record in Hong Kong and southern China, a series of love stories plays out with varied results. An emotionally withholding sushi chef (international star Daniel Wu) resists the entreaties of his former lover (Vivian Hsu) to rekindle their relationship, until she decides that perhaps her absence may make his heart grow fonder.

Ah Wai (musician Nicholas Tse), an air-conditioner repairman, finds his popularity skyrocketing during the heat wave, but can’t seem to get the attention of a mysterious girl (Barbie Hsu) who rides a motorcycle, until a late-night street race piques her interest. If he’s willing to accept her secret life, perhaps he’ll win her over.

Across town, a driver (pop star Jacky Cheung) for a celebrity hip hop performer, overcome by heat exhaustion, ends up in the hospital, where he mistakenly sends an errant text message received by an unemployed pianist (Rene Liu) working as a foot masseuse. The two carry on a flirtatious cyber-romance by adopting fictional identities, even as their feelings for one another grow increasingly authentic.

Meanwhile in mainland China, a young shopworker (Jing Boran) falls for a local factory girl (Wing Yeung), who tells him he must stand in the hot summer sun for 100 days outside the window of her workshop to earn her affection. But his determination to win her begins to flag in the unbearable heat, even though his apparent loyalty engages her sympathy.

In Beijing, a famous photographer (Duan Yihong), who loses his sight after firing a vindictive young female model from a fashion shoot, must rely on the kindness and compassion of his assistant (Fu Xinbo) in their quest to find the girl that the younger man has fallen in love with and lift her suspected curse.

Throughout the movie, the starry ensemble cast struggles with a cookie-cutter script weighed down by coincidence and cliches that leaves little opportunity for inspired interpretation. Co-directors Wing Shya and Tony Chan (one of two screenwriters) seem to have lifted nearly every familiar shot from the romcom playbook, substituting imitation for originality and sentimentality for comedy. Aside from the unusual weather, “Hot Summer Days” generates too little heat to spark much fervor.

Production: Fox International Productions, Star Television Asia, Huayi Brothers Media Corp.
Cast: Jacky Cheung, Daniel Wu, Nicholas Tse, Vivian Hsu, Rene Liu, Barbie Hsu, Duan Yihong, Fu Xinbo, Jing Boran, Wing Yeung

Variety: Hot Summer Days

A “Valentine’s Day”-style romantic multi-strander, “Hot Summer Days,” Fox’s virgin venture into Chinese-language production and distribution, bubbles along with a jaunty but unoriginal blend of the sweet, tart, cute and weepy.

According to a report from Taiwan’s Apple Daily, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Shu Qi will play husband and wife in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s long rumored, since 2007, martial arts fantasy film (The Assassin). The cast also includes Chang Chen and Tadanobu Asano and begins low-key shooting in Nara, Japan now that Shu Qi’s If You Are the One 2 has wrapped up. [In July, HHH was granted a $625,000 production subsidy from the Taiwan government's National Development Fund and assurance that 30 percent of the budget would be provided.]

Hot Summer Days
(Chuen sing yit luen — yit lat lat)

(Hong Kong) A Fox Intl. Prods. (in U.S.) release of a Fox Intl. Prods., Star Television Asia, Huayi Brothers Media, Hot Summer Pictures production. Produced by Fruit Chan, Paul Cheng. Executive producer, Wang Zhongjun. Co-producers, Zhang Dajun, Bernard Yang. Co-executive producer, Wang Zhonglei. Directed by Tony Chan, Wing Shya. Screenplay, Chan, Lucretia Ho.

With: Jacky Cheung, Rene Liu, Vivian Hsu, Daniel Wu, Nicolas Tse, Barbie Hsu, Angelababy, Fu Xinbo, Duan Yihong, Gordon Liu, Boran Jing, Maggie Cheung.

By RONNIE SCHEIB
A “Valentine’s Day”-style romantic multi-strander, “Hot Summer Days,” Fox’s virgin venture into Chinese-language production and distribution, bubbles along with a jaunty but unoriginal blend of the sweet, tart, cute and weepy. Negotiating five barely linked plotlines set around Beijing, Hong Kong and Shenzhen during the hottest summer ever, helming duo Tony Chan and Wing Shya skip nimbly from story to story, avoiding boredom but guaranteeing superficiality. Star-studded pic has already scored big in Asia, and its limited Stateside release should rev up DVD interest.

Despite threadbare meet-cutes and coy ploys at playing hard to get, the material is made enormously likable by engaging thesps, foremost among them Jacky Cheung, as an ex-driver reduced to parading around in an ice-cube costume, and Rene Liu, as a pianist employed as a foot masseuse. A motorcycle pas de deux between a gorgeous, tattooed mystery girl (Barbie Hsu) and an air-conditioning repairman (Nicholas Tse) exudes ghoulishly schmaltzy charm; even the country-simple tale of a teddy-bear factory worker (Angelababy) who tests the devotion of her hick swain (Fu Xinbo) rings true. And then there’s long-absent Maggie Cheung, weeping and abandoned in a solo cameo. (Mandarin, Cantonese dialogue)

Camera (color, widescreen), Sion Michel; editor, Wenders Li; music, Eddie Chung, Eugene Pao; production designer, Sean Kunjambu; costume designer, Sean Kunjambu. Reviewed at Quad Cinema, New York, Oct. 2, 2010. Running time: 93 MIN.

Variety: China reports 44% rise in box office(THR)

Multiplex growth averages 1.65 screens a day

China’s B.O. boom continued unabated last year as box office rose a muscular 44% to 6.2 billion yuan ($910 million) on a sharp rise in the number of cinema screens in what’s potentially the world’s biggest market.

The China Film Group had earlier forecast 40% year-on-year growth (Daily Variety, Dec. 29).

With this kind of growth rate, I am confident that in 2010, China’s box office will grow to a new height,” China Film spokesman Weng Li said. His remarks were based on data from the State Administration of Radio, Film and TV.

This means for the last six years, the Chinese film market’s box office has maintained an annual growth rate of more than 30%,” Weng said, adding that China produced 456 domestic films in 2009.

The main impetus behind the strong growth was the rise in screen numbers. Citing SARFT figures, Weng said China had added 1.65 new screens every day last year.

China imports around 20 foreign films a year for theatrical release. The two top movies of 2009 were 2012,” which took $67.5 million, and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” which took $63 million.

Homegrown epic “The Founding of a Republic,” celebrating the People’s Republic of China’s 60th anniversary, made $61 million.

Chinese Film: Happy Noodle Year

2009 has come to an end, but the battle for movie-goers has just begun.This season, the competition is more intense than ever. Take this downtown cinema; by mid-February it will have screened four dozen films since late-November. Film makers believe it’s this bumper holiday period, taking in Valentine’s Day and Spring Festival, that will lay the golden eggs…

The film market is like a highway. If too many cars take to it at the same time, there will be a traffic jam. In that case, even a BMW can’t drive at top speed.

The head of the cinema chain said to make the maximum profit out of the market, a film must enjoy at least one week free of competition before it’s joined by a new one. But now, cinemas are getting much busier than in previous years, as it’s common to put on several new films in a single day, resulting in vicious competition…
