Between Shanghai and Hong Kong: Blossoms Shanghai as a tale of two cities

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Abstract

Academic Ying Zhu observes that in Blossoms Shanghai directed by Wong Kar-wai, Shanghai is vivid, vibrant and evocative of both the glamour of a colonial Hong Kong and the hustle and bustle of a gilded age Shanghai. The TV drama speaks of the historical relationship between the two cities, and when the bright lights have dimmed, the ruins of the spectacle and the broken dreams. If geopolitical reshuffling in recent years has diminished Hong Kong's lustre as a first-tier global city and the link between China and the rest of the world, what does the future have in store for Shanghai?
