The Pillow Book - Vivian Wu (1996) - Hong Kong Park, Central

Sometimes I have to go beyond the call of duty for this blog and view films that are a bit, well...pants! Case in point: The Pillow Book directed by Peter Greenaway. Thankfully it has some interesting bits of Hong Kong - some we've seen before, some we haven't.

Sadly, for this blog at least, Greenaway's habit of sticking insets in the middle of the screen mean some of the locations are obscured, but I think there is enough available for a quick look. Anyway, for starters we get some shots taken from within the bounds of Hong Kong Park.

 We also catch a brief glimpse of Flagstaff House a bit later on. The lights behind it are from the Lippo Centre.
