Bends  [2013]
DirectorFlora Lau
CastChen Kun, Carina Lau
A humble chauffeur (Chen Kun; Painted Skin, Let the Bullets Fly) and the spoiled wife of his wealthy employer (Carina Lau; Days of Being Wild, Ashes of Time, Flowers of Shanghai) are linked together by very different kinds of dilemmas, in this quietly heart-rending double-character study from first-time feature director Flora Lau.
Shot by iconic cinematographer Christopher Doyle, Bends tells the story of Anna (Carina Lau), an affluent housewife and Fai (Chen Kun), her chauffeur, and their unexpected friendship as they negotiate the pressure of Hong Kong life and the city’s increasingly complex relationship to mainland China.
