DIRECTOR - Freddie WONG
Co-founder and first president of Phoenix Cine Club, Freddie Wong, studied in France at the Conservatoire Libre du Cinéma Français in the late seventies. He was a programmer for the Hong Kong International Film Festival, and former president of the Hong Kong Film Critics Society. In 1999, he co-produced Yu Lik-Wai’s debut film Love Will Tear Us Apart (1999), which was in competition at Cannes Film Festival. In 2009, the French Ministry of Culture and Communications awarded him the title of Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.

He co-produced Addicted to Love (Liu Hao, 2010) and produced The Drunkard (2010) which he also scripted and directed. Indeed, the original novel of The Drunkard has recently been translated into Korean by Professor Kim Hye-joon of Pusan National University. In 2014, he edited and published a monumental work on Hong Kong Cinema – The Ultimate Guide to Hong Kong Film Directors (1979-2013) – in two volumes and in both Chinese and English.
SYNOPSIS
The Gambler is a sequel to The Drunkard (2010), and the characters and plot are an extension of Liu Yichang’s classic novel. Lulu’s father is a gambler, and being the eldest daughter, she must work in a night club, at only 17 years of age, in order to support the family. She falls in love with Mr. Lau, a poor but gifted writer. However, their relationship ends bitterly.

Hong Kong, the late 1980’s – Lulu’s younger brother, Wai Keung, grew up watching his gambling-addict father almost destroys his family, but ironically becomes a gambler, too. Working as a car mechanic, he meets Dr. Wincy Lee, a pretty, young lady from a rich family, and a radiologist. Wai Keung finds their class differences hard to bridge. At the same time, Lulu meets and falls in love with Kwok Lap, a retired racing driver now driving a taxi. With student demonstrations escalating in Beijing, Hong Kong citizens are extremely concerned about the future of Hong Kong after 1997.

Although Wincy’s family is friendly towards Wai Keung, he nonetheless feels uneasy in their presence. He hopes to make his fortune through gambling on the stock market. After the June 4th crackdown in Beijing, the stock market crashes, and Wai Keung incurs huge losses. It is only with Kwok Lap and Lulu’s help that he avoids complete financial ruin. But, what of his relationship with Dr. Wincy Lee? Do they have a future?
