A change of pace for Billy Tang.
19 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Those Were the Days (1995) follows a group of childhood friends who fall on hard times. Some of them become street hoods whilst the others become drug addicts. A sad tale that is all to common. Shot in a docu-drama fashion, this movie is also about redemption and finding a light at the end of the tunnel. Will any of these childhood friends rely upon each other and get out of the triad or drug abuser life style or will they just become another statistic?

A change of pace for Category III film maker Billy Tang. He uses all of his usual trademarks (Blue lighting, filming in shadows) whilst filming this heart felt docu-drama. The movie seems to be based upon a true story but I couldn't follow the epilogue because it was written in very small Chinese characters.

A very interesting film, if you can find a copy.

Highly recommended.
