The Hong Kong Film Critic Association yesterday announced the 2010 China Hong Kong Taiwan film critic alliance's top ten Chinese and foreign films". Due to the gradually closer relationship between the three lands on both sides of the strait, the selected films or "nominated" films were films that are the most worth recommended to the general audience of all three places. Thus the selection method will no longer be decided by the film's commercial achievement but by film critic's review and evaluation of the film. The order was based on the scores that each organization provided to make the results even more representative. The most important point is the event hoped to display the different results from the three places and not the overall results. Due to films of the three locations have their own merits and the points of view are not completely identical, the timing for a Best Picture for all three places is not arrived yet. Thus the event hoped viewers would start with the chance to watch the recommended films of the three places, gradually expanding to mutual understanding and admiration. One day will come when a Best Picture for all three places will be chosen.
The Hong Kong Film Critic Association 2010 Top Ten Chinese Films in order are MERRY GO ROUND (DUNG FUNG BOR), DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAMES (DIK YUN KIT ji TUNG TIN DAI GOK), LOVE IN A PUFF (JI MING YU CHUN GIU), UNDER THE HAWTHORN TREE, BREAK UP CLUB (FUN SAU SHUET OI NEI), STOOL PIGEON (SIN YUN), AFTER SHOCK, REIGN OF ASSASSINS (GIM YU), GALLANTS (DAI LUI TOI) and MONGA.
