Anna (Carina Lau), a wealthy Hong Kong housewife, suddenly finds herself deep in financial trouble as her only source of income, her husband, disappears. Her driver, Fai (Chen Kun), who lives in Shenzhen with his wife, are expecting the couple’s second child. But under China’s One Child Policy, they need to find the money to pay the penalty or the couple must find a way for Fai’s wife to give birth in Hong Kong. this movie is a winner just because the cinematographer just happens to be a certain Mr. Christopher Doyle.

there is so many beautiful subdued shots in this movie that you can do capture screen-shots and fill up a whole album. its been awhile since hes been involved in a Chinese project. he is the cinematographer for one of my favorite movies ” chungking express ” and he is world renowned for his cinematography. i wonder why the title of the movie in English is called ” bends ” and then i figured it out…”bends” is slang for Mercedes Benz even in the Chinese language and that is the make of car that the chauffeur drives in this movie.

the literal translation of the title from Chinese to English would be “crossing borders or into another world” and in this movie that is what the chauffeur is trying to do with his pregnant wife…by sneaking or crossing over from Shenzen mainland china into hong kong so they could have their baby in hong kong and give the baby a better future. the crossing over for Carina Laus character who is a rich wife whos husband is a businessman who is in financial turmoil and just disappears…is the fact that she now has to decide what to do with herself and how she will carry on with her life. she is the lady that the chauffeur drives around a lot of times between shenzen china and hong kong. she seems to have everything and in the end after she loses everything she has to make a decision to cross to a different world where she is very unacustomed to. again a beautiful subdued movie with beautiful cinematography and i am not literally gifted enough to explain this movie thoroughly…but i feel that this movie is a work of art and should be enjoyed as such. like a good cup of coffee, tea or good liquor it is to be enjoyed at a moderate pace.
