Going Home    (2002)
Director Peter Chan is in charge of this last episode of the horror triptych movie Three. He decided to make a huis clos between Eric Tsang, Leon Lai and Eugenia Yuen in old and grotty buildings constituting almost a remote area from the HK depicted in most local movies. This apparent time and space discrepancy gives the illusion that the movie is actually far from the present HK preoccupations. This medium-length film is a part of a Pan-Asia project obviously designed for Asian markets. It is supposed to have a HK flavour. The other episodes are Thai and Korean. In Going Home there is a constant ambiguity between the fantasy of ghost stories and reality. So can it be considered as a typically Chinese ghost movie? The beautiful photography by Christopher Doyle and the overall simplistic story make Going Home a nice looking and stylish effort, which finally couldn't have last much longer than 52 minutes.
