The Movie Emperor

Ning Hao, China

红毯先生, 2022, 125 min, For all ages

Andy Lau is in his element as a self-centered star-has-been, who embarks on the road to make himself relevant through the shooting of a ‘rural Chinese festival film’. Satire hits home on many levels, and the audience can enjoy an array of references to past years’ Chinese and Hong Kong films in an enjoyable cavalcade of scenes.
