Director: Derek Kwok Chi Kin
Wingz never knows her mother. Ever since she was a toddler, her scientist grandfather have weaved the tale that she works for Santa Claus. Not until Wingz turns twenty does the incredible truth finally dawns on her, when she accidentally opens a freezing chamber in his grandfather's laboratory and resurrects a mysterious young woman inside. The woman is none other than Wing's long lost mother, Gigi, who, unbeknownst to her daughter, has been cyronically frozen since a fatal car accident twenty years ago. To make up for lost time, she sets off with Wingz search of her boyfriend, who happens to be Wingz's biological father.

January 31, 2011
After paying tribute to the 70s with the acclaimed action comedy Gallants, up-and-coming director Derek Kwok has taken another trip down memory lane, this time focusing on the 80s, the era of the cassette walkman, Boy London fashion, and Leslie Cheung at the height of his pop career.
Hong Kong pop singer Janice Vidal makes her return to the movies after A Melody Looking a few years back, and she handles her part admirably well. Here she plays Wing, a girl who never knew about her real parents until the passing of her scientist foster father (Alfred Cheung), whose purpose in the story is to send Wing to the place the cryogenically frozen body of her mother is stored. Wing unwittingly releases the thawing mom, Monica (Janice Man), who was put in stasis there 20 years ago at an age even younger than Wing is now. The filmmakers have no intention of making a B-grade sci-fi family drama, nor do they dwell too much on the fish-out-of-water comedy opportunities. What follows is the two girls setting out on a journey to find one's missing boyfriend and the other's real father.
Monica spends a considerable amount of time reminiscing about her sweet teenage romance in the late 1980s, and the flashback sequences are what's most fascinating about the film. Aarif Rahman (a.k.a. Aarif Lee) excels as the Prince Charming, and he proves to be such a revelation for Hong Kong films with his good looks and a temperament that is positively out of time. About halfway through the movie, the three young leads' boss Leon Lai makes his unbilled appearance in a role that is surprisingly big for a "special appearance", which is what he's credited for at the end of the film. Unfortunately, his presence seems rather jarring in comparison to what came before it. No doubt Leon is a fine actor with tremendous charisma, but the way his character is designed, he inevitably comes off as a disappointment - but to be fair that is not really his fault. Still, the Canto-pop King is given his time to shine in a disco scene when he gets to show off his really awesome dancing skills!
Perhaps the most significant character of all is the late Leslie Cheung, whose timeless classic numbers not only make up the soundtrack of the film, but also the heart and soul of the dreamy and romantic times this film so fondly remembers. Partly playful, partly poignant, and all the way nostalgic of the good old days, Frozen is essentially cut from the same cloth as Gallants, so consider it required viewing for the fans of the latter.
