This essay critiques unreflective celebration of transnational Chinese cinema and proposes the transnational as methodology. By examining the dual modes of address in a Hong Kong remake of a Lubitsch musical comedy, I demonstrate the importance of scrutinizing border politics and the foreignization of Chinese cinema in its transnational production and reception.

Keywords: foreignization; methodology; mode of address; remake; transnational cinema
