Taiwan pop singer Jay Chou's second directorial work in six years is a musical, a rare genre in the Chinese film market. The Rooftop is set in a fantasy city made up of two different communities. Chou and his friends live on the rooftop, where poor people sing and dance every day. Under the roof are the rich and powerful. When a movie star under the roof steps into the poor people's world accidentally, she changes lives of both groups. The Rooftop is a comic Notting Hill set in the 1960s, with singing and dancing involving Chou himself. Released on July 11 in China, the film will close the 12th edition of The New York Asian Film Festival, which is running until July 15.
