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.
An average film compared to director Ann Hui's more captivating works. But it's still well worth a viewing if simply for Anthony Wong's perfect portrayal of Father Peter Kam. The actor, who has appeared in too many lame films for his own good, finally landed a role which does justice to his superb acting.
