After a dalliance on the mainland in his hugely successful sequel Love In The Buff
, Hong Kong's Pang Ho Cheung has returned home for his latest directorial endeavour, Aberdeen
- a comedy-drama focusing on three generations of one family as they deal with heartbreak and hardship.
Pang regular Miriam Yeung stars alongside Eric Tsang, Louis Koo and Gigi Leung, and the film is slated for a May release in Hong Kong. While the official line-up has yet to be announced, it's very likely that Aberdeen will debut at the 38th Hong Kong International Film Festival, which is to be held from 24 March - 7 April.
Here's the official synopsis:
Life starts and ends with a breath of air. And between each breath, one goes through life's ups and downs and its joy and sorrow. Aberdeen tells the story of 3 generations of the CHENG family as they cope with the trauma of the past and learn to reconcile and move on.
CHENG Wai-ching (Miriam YEUNG) is a tour guide at the museum. Her mundane life with husband YAU Kin-cheung (Eric TSANG) is plagued by his affair with a young nurse and her estranged relationship with her parents. Wai-ching's brother Wai-tao (Louis KOO) is a successful tutor married to a model Ceci KWOK (Gigi LEUNG), whose career is on the decline. They have trouble coping with a daughter who tries too hard to please because of her unattractive appearance. Their father CHENG Dong (NG Man-tat) is given the cold shoulder by his children because of his relationship with nightclub hostess (Carrie NG).
