The Rooftop (Hollywood Reporter review)

The Rooftop

8/6/2013 by Clarence Tsui

The Bottom Line
An over-emphasis on style over substance results in a film trying to thrive on multiple genres and succeeding in none.

Taiwanese pop idol Jay Chou’s sophomore directorial effort revolves around a small town tough’s ill-advised pursuit of a starlet, channeled through a mix of musical numbers, martial arts moves and melodrama.

Usually it’s desperate, first-time directors who, for fear of not having a second stab at their dream job, proceed to stuff their debut with everything they want to say — usually involving a fantastical version of themselves as the protagonists — in every kind of aesthetic (and visual gimmickry) they want to dabble in. So it’s probably a surprise that Jay Chou would do exactly that with The Rooftop, given his experience (this is his second film) and his pedigree (he’s one of the biggest pop stars in Chinese-speaking markets, and boasts a stint in Hollywood courtesy of his turn as Kato in the misfired reboot of The Green Hornet).

Unfortunately, Chou’s artistic ambitions have proved to be misguided, as his genre-hopping mix of musical numbers, martial arts moves and melodrama only ended up glaringly incoherent, and lacking the subtlety and storytelling nous he attained with his surprisingly lyrical 2007 debut The Secret. By reaching for the stars, The Rooftop has caved in on itself, revealing a hollow core within its all-dancing, all-singing and gags-galore veneer.

Hardly setting the home front on fire — the film opened in mainland China and Taiwan early July before bowing in Hong Kong on August 1 — the film is highly unlikely to break out of Asian-themed festivals worldwide (such as the New York Asian Film Festival, where it made its international premiere last month before its Well Go-backed limited release in the U.S. on July 19).

Taking its cues from past genre benchmarks from West Side Story to Kung Fu Hustle, The Rooftop deploys sweeping, widescreen cinematic tropes to bring about the frustrations and dreams of the 20th century urban working-class, their earthiness and care for the collective good deployed as the starting-point of high drama to come. Set in a fictional Chinese-speaking city called Galilee — a place bearing the traits of 1930s Shanghai (with mobsters being the de facto rulers of the realm) and the U.S.-influenced Taipei in the 1960s (as suggested by the hairstyles and favorite haunts of the local street punks) — the film’s title alludes to the sky-high community from which its protagonists hail from, a quartet of young men led by Wax (played by Chou himself).

And the first quarter of the film certainly plays like the “martial arts musical” Chou has promised to deliver, as the Problematic Four attempt to break out of their humdrum life (as workers in a Chinese clinic which offers – what else? – thumping dance shows to help customers down their bitter medication) by getting into skirmishes with thugs as a way to pass the time and also to help one of the gang, the pretty-faced Tempura (Alan Ko), “collect rents” in the name of the local clansman Rango (mainland Chinese thesp Wang Xueqi).

But all these loud, retro-overkill visual antics are soon revealed to be merely the supporting elements to the tragic-romance trope which Chou has previously delivered with poise in Secret. And it’s here that The Rooftop morphs from its original rebellious-youth-flick guise into Notting Hill, as Wax falls in and then out of love with the model-turned-actress Starling (Li Xin’ai) — with the Richard Curtis film’s influence on Chou clearly shown by a sequence depicting the dismayed, heartbroken young man walking around town surrounded by umbrellas, billboards and all kinds of knick-knacks bearing his paramour’s visage.

It’s a scene which speaks volumes about The Rooftop’s flaws: seemingly obsessed with peppering his film with fantastical widescreen grandstanding, Chou has overlooked the need to inject characterization, context and convincing dialog into the proceedings.

Perhaps paying too much time in getting the visual pyrotechnics and mise-en-scene correct, the human element — that is, the acting — has fallen by the wayside too: with Chou letting his ego run wild by playing Wax as a poseur, and Li — who is making her acting debut here — not helping matters with her blank-faced, squeaky-voiced turn.

With Wang and Xu Fan — who plays the four ruffian’s sisterly neighbor Jasmine — getting limited screen time and the two Hong Kong veterans Eric Tsang and Kenny Bee constricted by roles which are more a digression (for Tsang, who plays the cocky herbalist Wax works for) or a type (for Bee, as Starling’s protective father), opportunities for a substantial supporting player to salvage the situation are rendered very thin.

Stripping bare of the bombast, The Rooftop could have served as a competent (if a bit much-revisited) sepia-tinged romantic drama about the hopes and fantasies of a young man who has bitten off much more than he can chew, and is left to reflect on the consequences of his overreaching acts. As it stands now, Chou is actually left to ponder exactly the conundrum his on-screen alter-ego confronts.

AP: Hong Kong film festival opens, mood subdued because of Japanese disasters

“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is part of [Johnnie] To’s recent push into the mainland Chinese market with blander fare than his signature crime thrillers, which are often too violent or gritty to pass mainland censorship. But the movie’s story of a playboy Hong Kong trader and an earnest Canadian-Chinese architect pulling all stops to win the heart of a mainland Chinese financial analyst reads like political commentary on China’s growing geopolitical clout.

To didn’t attend Sunday’s opening ceremony, but his co-director denied any political overtones in the movie.

October’s “Aftershock,” about a devastating 1976 earthquake, was one of the highest-grossing films ever in mainland China but brought in just $61,000 in limited North American release. In December, “If You Are the One 2″ grossed a respectable $427,000, while the Chinese remake of “What Women Want” sold about $130,000 of tickets in February. The movies all premiered in about two dozen theaters.

Hi, Fidelity

Making its world premiere at HKIFF is Hong Kong filmmaker Poon Yuen-leung’s Hi, Fidelity, which follows the sexual exploits of three spurned Hong Kong housewives who cross the border to China, only to discover they’ve all fallen for the same gigolo. The film will likely be a big draw because it marks the comeback of iconic Hong Kong actress Patricia Ha (An Amorous Woman of Tang Dynasty), who makes her first appearance onscreen in eight years.THR: Everything You Need to Know to Survive Filmart

Kung Fu Panda 2, which adds the voice of Pan-Asian superstar Michelle Yeoh to a cast that brings back Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu, is all but certain to be released in China on May 26, simultaneous with its North American debut.

Chinese shingle Huayi Brothers has announced a long-term co-operation deal with Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung’s Hong Kong-based indie production house Diversion Pictures.

TVB General Manager and Show Host Arrested For Graft

Stephen Chan, 51, allegedly controlled the shell company which accepted production contracts from TVB and then outsourced the work to other production houses, according to a source.

This allegedly allowed the shell company to accumulate as much as HK$10 million over the years. Some of TVB’s top artists such as Bernice Liu, Moses Chan Ho, Raymond Lam Fung, Bosco Wong Chung-Chak, Tavia Yeung Yi and Charmaine Sheh Sze-man had been forced to perform in major shows and other functions, and even ribbon-cutting ceremonies, for free or at very low pay. [Chan was the host of Be My Guest that interviewed the teary Gillian Chung last year, you may recall.]

HK Magazine: There Goes the Neighborhood

The filmmakers of “Echoes of the Rainbow,” which is set in 1960s Hong Kong, found themselves in trouble when they initially couldn’t find the right location for their film. Alex Law Kai-yui and Mabel Cheung originally went to Sham Shui Po to scout for locations, only to find that most of the streets in even this old neighborhood have changed quite a bit, with no street having all the tong laus intact. In the end, they found Wing Lee Street. “If this street is torn down too, Hong Kong will lose yet another street full of characters,” producer Mabel Cheung says after returning to Hong Kong from Berlin. “This is the only street retaining the 1960’s Hong Kong.”

Cheung also mentions that, before finding Wing Lee Street, they considered shooting the film in Malaysia or Guangzhou instead. “It’d be preposterous to shoot a film about Hong Kong in another city,” Cheung says.

Fake Donations-Gate Updates, a very complicated affair: The promised deadline for a full accounting of Zhang Ziyi’s foundation account have come and passed. Zhang’s agent, normally responsive, has not been returning text messages inquiring about an explanation…Reportedly, initial donations of US$2M to Zhang Ziyi’s foundation were funnelled to her private account..Other celebrity names have been drawn into the fake donations net, Zhou Xun and Zhao Wei, etc…An online Chinese Red Cross search of contributions show Zhou Xun contributed only 300 yuan. This was attributed to being a contribution made by a similar name.. In Zhang’s favor, a citizen reported to anewspaper hotline that he knew where the individual contributions went. Several stars among them Chen Kun, Zhang Ziyi and Zhao Wei helped rebuild a collapsed school for the deaf, but after a records search the total donated by Zhang Ziyi only accounted for 840,000 yuan. Today, Zhou Xun’s agent announced that Zhou Xun as UN Goodwill Ambassador had made an undisclosed contribution to a UN designated account for Haitian disaster relief. This has been dubbed a ‘fraud tax’. (Xinhua) (2)
