Death and rebirth have been taking place at every corner of this city both inside and outside of films. In Long Arm Of The Law, one revisits Kowloon Walled City, Yau Tsim Mong and Tai Koo districts amidst bullets and the city of gold. The place once called Lo Fu Ngam (meaning tiger cliff in Cantonese) has been renamed as Lok Fu (meaning happiness and richness in Cantonese) by the British Government. It indicated the expectation of the city at that time.
But Ah Lok and Ah Fu, are you fine tonight?
