Hong Kong on Fire 1941 (1995) was a depressive film that depicts the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong. The film relishes in the many atrocities that the Japanese perpetrated on the Chinese people. Chingmy Yau and Veronica Yip star as two siblings who struggle to survive during the Japanese occupation. Before the film starts we get to hear two older actors Wang Tian-Lam and Shih Kien briefly discuss the Japanese occupation. Co-stars Elvis Tsui. A very depressing film about survival. If you like to watch exploitive war films or you're in the mood to see Chingmy Yau act then you'll like this movie. Other than that, it's a real downer.
