Storyline

Years later, a woman narrates her personal story of the Japanese takeover of Hong Kong in 1941. She's Nam, young, attractive, daughter of a wealthy rice merchant, and prey to painful, disabling seizures. Her boyhood friend is Coolie Keung, whose family used to have wealth; he's now impoverished, a tough kid, a leader, in love with her. Into the mix steps Fay, cool and resourceful, an actor from the north, intent on getting to Gold Mountain in the US or Australia. They form a threesome, but the day they are to leave Hong Kong, the invasion stops them. Fay must rescue Keung from collaborators, Nam falls in love with Fay, and danger awaits their next attempt to escape. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great Cinematography!
28 February 2002 | by (Cardiff) – See all my reviews

Hong Kong 1941 (Waiting for Day Break) is a little gem that every one must find! The Cinematography is just perfect! every shot looks great... the Actors are all great! (not just Chow) This movie won a few Golden Horse awards too... for best Cinematography and best Actor... which it deserves :)

Any way... go buy the Hong Kong Legends DVD of this baby right now!!! GO! :P
