My Life As McDull (2001)


Director: Toe Yuen

The 26th Hong Kong International Film Festival “FIPRESCI Award” has been given to a local animation My Life as McDull, directed by Toe Yuen, original script written by Brian Tse and Alice Mak.

McDull is not the brightest kid on the block, but he continuously tries to do his best to please his mother. Still ti seems he may not be destined for great things like she wishes, but McDull strives to try anyway.

The story focuses on several tales about McDull and his early life. This is told as a narrative reflection of a now adult McDull. These tales mix in creative uses of Cantonese and lots of local culture. From tales about a turkey dinner to dreams of following in San San's footsteps, McDull faces ups and downs with his demanding but loving mother.

The songs featured in the film are clever and catchy and are not overbearing as some musical animations tend to become. The film's animation is simple and colorful changing at times as stories change, but reflecting the style of the original artwork. It uses some modern CG animation is several scenes to depict the urban Hong Kong, but it cleverly shows Hong Kong as the dirty metropolis it is rather than the squeaky clean cityscape that many travel commercials like to depict.

The good-natured and gaumless piglet McDull has cheered up the lives of kids, professors, housewives and CEOs, because he epitomises the irrepressible and happy-go-lucky spirit of Hong Kong. His no-holds-barred porcobiography is a frame-by-frame account of life growing up in the slums of Shamshuipo, set against the colourful canvass of a post-97 Hong Kong trudging along in spite of recession woes. Swooping shots of bustling Kowloon streets, greasy cafés, plus sights and smells of local flavour fuse with animation, live object photography and 3-D computer graphics to provide 100% "Honkie" entertainment.
