The Pillow Book - Vivian Wu (1996) - Lion Rock Road, Kowloon City

Wu's character holes up in Kowloon City when she first arrives in Hong Kong. There are a few brief moments when we catch a glimpse of the northern end of Lion Rock Road where it joins with Carpenter Road.

As with elsewhere in Hong Kong, many of the overhead signs have been removed (a big shame in my opinion) but most of the buildings seem to still be around even if the businesses within have changed. The sole commercial remnant is the cafe with the blue/red sign seen above and in the Streetview grab below (now underneath the square sign with the cartoon face).
