Plot & Details
Lian' Ai Qiyi (Heroes in Love) is a collection of three short films about young love in Hong Kong. All were helmed by first-time directors, who happen to be from Hong Kong themselves. The first short is Kidnap by well-known graphic artist Shya Wing. It is the story of Joe a shy lesbian who falls madly in love a strange woman. In fact, Joe's attraction is so strong that she decides to kidnap the woman and hold her a prisoner at her flat. An inexperienced kidnapper, Joe muddles her way through her first days as jailor, slowly but surely winning her captive's heart. My Beloved is the second short, by two performers, Stephen Fung and Nicholas Tse. A deranged pizza boy named Robin is the main character here, and the story starts on the day he purchases a new handgun called the "Ejaculator". Robin so loves his new weapon that he eats, sleeps, and drinks with it, until finally the gun begins talking to him like a lover. Peppered with references to Taxi Driver, the tale spirals towards a finale in which the gun provokes Robin to prove his love through violence. Og, G! is the third short, by a popular disc jockey known as GC Goo-bi. Two teenagers, Charlene and Lawrence, meet on the Internet. The two get along well despite their mis-matched personalities, Lawrence being an immature slob, and Charlene a dreamer seeking an idealized romantic love. But their platonic relationship blossoms into something more once they decide to meet in the flesh. TBC is an epilogue by producer Jan Lamb which contains interviews with the four directors and outtakes from the shorts. The entire film was the brainchild of Lamb's Emperor Multimedia Group and collaborator PCC Skyhorse Ltd. which joined forced to bring new Hong Kong talents into the spotlight.
