The rise of co-productions on the one hand, and the decline of Hong Kong cinema on the other, have brought Chinese cinema into a new age in which Hong Kong cinema has been taken over. No wonder Henry Fong, a senior actor-producer-director, lamented in 2006, just a decade after Hong Kong's reunification with China, that “From now on Hong Kong cinema is Chinese cinema.” This chapter examines the impact of the rise in co-productions after 1997 on the development of Hong Kong cinema. If Hong Kong cinema, once popular not only in Chinese communities but across the world, will (or has) become Chinese cinema, one can say that “one country, two systems” does not necessarily guarantee “one country, two cultures.”
