$10.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

Crossings is ostensibly a fictional narrative set in New York involving motifs familiar to many viewers of Hong Kong's prolific generic cinema, namely the broken romance set in a foreign surrounding and drug smuggling. Like other exilic narratives such as An Autumn's Tale, Farewell China, Floating Weeds and Comrades: A Love Story, Crossings focuses upon certain aspects of the immigrant experience such as dislocation and loss that threaten the secure identities of its main characters. Like Farewell China and Comrades, it involves the theme of a love relationship affected by alienating experiences encountered by both participants within a new cultural and geographical landscape.
