Movie Review: Project Glutenberg

Art and counterfeit American dollars… This movie featured two of my favourite Hong Kong movie stars, Aaron Kwok and Chow Yun Fat.


Lee Man was an artist, that was skilled in painting replicas of infamous paintings. His skill was so meticulous to the point of using scientific ways of making the canvas seemingly genuine.

This skill caught the eye of the counterfeit gang leader, the Painter. He hired him to make the gang’s super bills. But, once Lee Man discovered the dangers of working with the gang, things changed. The police force invited him to help with their investigation….

Themes (Spoiler Alert)

1) Everyone has a talent: Sometimes your talent may take awhile before you may find useful. Be patient and someday it will come in handy.

2) Things are never what they seem: Poor talented artist being rejected and tricked into helping a crime lord…or is he?

Yay or Nay

Absolutely! What an entertaining movie! The art aspect part was very interesting. The interactions between the characters were spontaneous and intriguing.

  1. Thanks for the suggestion, Vivian. I love the theme of the artist getting entangled, then using his skills to free himself and to turn the tables. An intellectual delight.

    A overarching theme in “Shawshank Redemption,” (if you haven’t seen it, I recommend….), and it sounds like a central premise of “Project Gutenberg” too. I suspect a movie night is coming soon…
