The decadence of Hong Kong movie industry by Grace Chiu

The 80s and 90s were the golden age of Hong Kong movie industry, but the movie market of Hong Kong becomes shrinking after entering the millennium.

"The Hong Kong film market is only one-third of the past," said Cheuk Pak Tong, Professor Emeritus of Hong Kong Baptist University.

Cheuk said that the theme of Hong Kong Movie is diversified, Hong Kong people can film whatever they want. However, there isn't any central idea.

Cheuk supplements that the main reason cause the shrinking of the Hong Kong movie industry is Hong Kong movie can't break into the mainland market.

"Hong Kong movie lost the Tai Wan market and Southeast Asia market, so Hong Kong is the only market, " said Cheuk.

Cheuk explains that the necessary cost of filming a Hong Kong movie is around ten million. Since the limitation of the budget, the producer can't hire a famous star to starred in a movie. If there isn't any famous star in the movie, it's hard to sell the movie to other countries.

Cheuk points out that if movie company increase the budget, it might cause a deficit.

At the past, films like 'A Better Tomorrow' is famous in Asia, Stars such as Chow Yun Fat is well-known around the world. However, there is no more new star in Hong Kong can reach this level.

Cheuk claims it is because of the changing of society. The trend of popular would influence by the background characteristic of times, and It is hard to control it.
