Light-hearted drama…
Having the opportunity to sit down in 2022 and watch the 2017 Chinese comedy drama “King of Peking”, from writer and director Sam Voutas, of course I did so. No doubt about it, as I enjoy Asian cinema quite a lot. Now, I hadn’t ever heard about “King of Peking”, so I didn’t know what I was in for here, but it hardly mattered.

While “King of Peking” certainly was watchable and entertaining enough, it just wasn’t a particularly outstanding or memorable movie. For me, this movie was the type of movie that you watch once, then check off the to-watch-list and never return to watch it again. Sure, “King of Peking” was enjoyable, but it just didn’t warrant more than a single viewing.

Now, I noticed that several reviewers were commenting on the movie’s love for cinema, sure, I could see that, but “King of Peking” wasn’t just about the writer and director’s love for the cinema. No, this was definitely also a movie about the bonds between a father and his son, as well as the lengths a father will go to support his offspring.

I wasn’t familiar with the cast here, but I will say that both Jun Zhao (playing Big Wong) and Wang Naixun (playing Little Wong) definitely put on great performances and carried the movie quite well. Not only were their acting performances good, but the characters and their dialogue was nicely written by Sam Voutas as well.

If you enjoy a light drama and enjoy Asian cinema, then “King of Peking” is worth taking the time to sit down and watch.

My rating of “King of Peking” lands on a six out of ten stars.

Review By: paul_haakonsen
Sweet story, told in a nostalgic way. Very charming.
This film echoed parts of Cinema Paradiso. Growing up around films and cinema in a space and time where it feels like nothing else matters. Nicely styled and visually tight with the occasional very special shot included, this film tells a sweet story of a man trying to hold on to custody of his son. Very nostalgic, very recognisable relationship writing and also very Beijing. To anyone who knows the culture, you will get a lot out of this film, to anyone who doesn’t, you may see a more human 1990’s Beijing than often portrayed.
