From Asian Pacific Film Festival:
        Outperformed the latest Star War installment in Hong Kong box office, TEN YEARS is a thought-provoking five-part speculative omnibus feature that imagines what Hong Kong will be like ten years from now.  It earned China's state-run media outlet's disparaging remark as a "virus of the mind".  When the film won Best Film at the Hong Kong Film Awards, studio heads slammed the Awards voting as having been "hijacked (by) politics over professionalism". The newsworthiness of TEN YEARS - an omnibus film made by local film graduates and independent filmmakers - speaks precisely to the outre dystopia depicted in its five short films, and serve as evidence for the critical pessimism that drives much of the film's alarming premise. Conceived months before the Umbrella Movement, TEN YEARS offers five versions of Hong Kong in 2025.
        

        In "Extras," two genial low-level gangsters are hired to stage an attack, but they're mere sacrificial lambs in a political conspiracy. "Rebels" strive to preserve destroyed homes and objects as specimens in the mesmerizing Season of the End. In "Dialect," a taxi driver struggles to adjust after Putonghua displaces Cantonese as Hong Kong's only official language. Following the death of a leading independence activist, an act of self-immolation outside the British consulate triggers questions and protests in the searing yet moving "Self-Immolator." And in "Local Egg," a grocery shop owner worries about his son's youth guard activities and where to buy eggs after Hong Kong's last chicken farm closes down.
