A sincere and stimulating movie for everyone who still cares about Hong Kong or social movements
15 April 1999 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie at the opening of HK Int'l Film Festival. The movie seems to be documentary to me, which makes me a bit worry for its box in HK. It's a sincere movie about the social movements in HK -- something missed out from most ordinary people. Without disguise, the stories of "ordinary heroes" are being told. Just ordinary enough stories but the era and the sentiments involved fades in and out... just as the Chinese title: plenty of words... not knowing when to start the conversation, and this "means" more than the movie itself.
