Tony Chiu Wai Leung,
A low-level triad "big brother" has a hot-tempered "little brother" who can't keep out of trouble, and consequently is in constant need of being bailed out by his protector. The "big brother" is super cool, but lacks the ambition to rise in the ranks of the triad societies - and once he meets his cousin from Kowloon and falls in love with her, he even thinks about leaving "the life".

In a scene Wah incidentally encountered Mabel which was supposed to rain heavily, there were many people across the street seen walking nonchalantly, suggesting that the rain was in fact a custom set. See more »
I did a lot of things for our godfather too. By the age of 14, I was already getting paid to kill. I've got more guts than most guys, right? But look at me now. I'm just an ordinary guy!
At least you were a hotshot for a while! But what about me? What about me? Everyone looks down on me. Does that make you happy? People think I'm nothing, like some stray dog just following you around! Did you know that? I'd rather be a hero for one day than go on being a fly all my life!

Wong Kar-Wai is currently became one of my favorite living directors, i just love his style, aesthetics, stories, just amazing visionary and artist. Because of that i wanted to watch his debut movie "As Tears Go By", this was one of the movies i didn't watch to this date, and in my opinion it is solid for debut movie. It reminded me more on the other Hong Kong Movies from that time (there is not that kind of atmosphere like in "Fallen Angels" and "Chunking Express") this movie is more action packed, there is romance also but i think it is secondary thing in the movie. Acting is okay but the worst from all of his movies, in some moments i found it even funny and comic but for some strange reason i found it adorable. Only good acting you can see from Andy Lau he is really great in his role and even in that time he was a major star in Hong Kong. The relationship between Wah (Andy Lau) and cousin Ngor (Maggie Cheung) is not that interesting it is even somehow unbelievable if you compare it to Wong's other movies. The most i like about this movie is aesthetics they are so great, neon-lights and Hong Kong at night, citchy synth 80's music, and Cantonese version of "Take My Breath Away" how not to love this. I think that many fans of his movies "In The Mood For Love" and "Chunking Express" will not like this movie, they will hate it, but for me it is totally okay, as i say it is not perfect(it is full of flaws) but as a big fan of his later work, Hong Kong Cinema and Asian Cinema at all i somehow love this movie, and i found it interesting to see Hong Kong from that time. My grade 6/10.
