Les Anges Gardiens - Gerard Depardieu (1995) - Star Ferry, Tsim Sha Tsui

The action starts on the Star Ferry over to Tsim Sha Tsui as Depardieu's friend is ambushed by a bunch of Chinese gangsters. We get a few shots taken on board one of the ferries before everyone moves into the pier building.


However...look closely at the so-called "pier building" and you'll notice something a bit odd about it. I think it was actually a specially prepared boat, the structure is made of metal and the windows angle inwards. I suspect this may have been one of the old vehicular ferries kitted out to look like the pier building. Plus, there is a glaring error in the last image. Can you spot it?

  1. Hi Phil,

    The error may be intentional as they erred on both languages.

    1. Hi Thoamas - yes, I suspect there may have been an issue with using the name. Maybe the company objected?
      Cheers, Phil
