All About Ah Long - Chow Yun Fat (1989) - Shatin Inn, Tai Wai

Sylvia and Ah Long head off to the Shatin Inn for a drink and a chat and it's here where Sylvia finds out the truth about Porky. The Shatin Inn is a real place and was quite famous for its satay sticks. I haven't been out this way for a couple of years so I have no idea whether or not it has survived the pandemic measure. At the time the film was made the place was on the main Tai Po Road between Kowloon and Shatin, but the whole road system here has since been remodelled and that old part of Tai Po Road now forms the dead end route up to Shatin Heights i.e. it no longer benefits from through ..read more

Sylvia is beginning to suspect who Porky really is and so goes to see Ah Long at his workplace at the quarry. He agrees to go for a talk and the pair ride off on Ah Long's scooter. A quick view of them riding along a main road was taken along New Clear Water Bay Road at the bottom of Kowloon Peak area ..read more

The street where Ah Long plays a trick on Porky and pulls his shorts down. The Tai Woo Restaurant was located on the ground floor of Wong Tat Wing Court at #14-16 Hillwood Road (Open Rice thankfully keeps a database of closed venues). In this image we are looking west back towards Nathan Road ..read more

All About Ah Long - Chow Yun Fat (1989) - Lobster Bay Kite Flying Site, Clearwater Bay

The filming (for whatever Porky auditioned for) takes place on the open flat piece of land on top of the Lobster Bay promontory. It's been a few years since I ventured out this way, but the last time I was there it was completely deserted - certainly no one was flying kites. It's well worth a trip down here if you eventually make it out to HK because there were a tonne of overseas and local movies made in and around the area. There may or may not be lobsters in the bay, but all I can remember after diving there was an old car wreck ..read more

Throughout several flashbacks, Sylvia and Ah Long recall the circumstances of their failed relationship from ten years before. In one scene, Sylvia is kicked from the family home by her mother and is picked up by Ah Long. The location of Sylvia's home is Hong Garden on Ho Man Tin Street. You can see the building name (康園) on a sign next to the main gate. It looks more or less the same today. The only thing that has changed is the metal gate ..read more

All About Ah Long - Chow Yun Fat (1989) - Energy Plaza, Tsim Sha Tsui

Back in the 1980s Energy Plaza was quite famous in the action film world thanks to the top floor gym run by Eddie Maher (who recently passed away unfortunately) as well as Michael Wong being dangled from the top for Royal Warriors (although, when I saw it back in the 1980s it was called Police Assassins). Anyway, in All About Ah Long it's the office block where Sylvia's office is located and where Ah Long goes to sign the contract following Porky's successful audition, unaware that he is about to come face-to-face with his old girlfriend ..read more

At various points in the film we see an area where the motorbikes are practising. The first time is when Ah Long goes to see his friend, played by Ng Man Tat. In the initial scenes the area is a bit non-descript but it pops up again later in the film with a large clue to its location in the background. The first two images below are from the first time we see the area in the film but the bottom image is from later on in the movie (you can tell because Chow Yun Fat has had a hair cut). Note the building just behind Chow's head. It looks like an old house with a belvedere on the roof. There are ..read more

Ah Long's day job is as a labourer at the local quarry, in this case at Anderson Road in the hills above Kwun Tong. Quarrying has not been carried out here for some time, I believe, and there are plans to construct a new housing estate inside, but it's been a while since I was up here and don't know if it's started/finished yet ..read more
