Storyline

In 1997, Little Cheung is a street-wise nine-year-old boy living in a bustling neighbourhood of Hong Kong, just before the reunification with China. His parents are always working at their restaurant, so Little Cheung becomes much closer to his grandmother and her Filipino maid Armi. Little Cheung befriends Fan, a girl his age who is an illegal immigrant from China. He splits his tips with her when she helps him deliver take-outs for his father. The pair have some amusing adventures, and delight in peeing in the drinks of a troublesome thug. Against his father's will, Little Cheung starts searching for his older brother, whom his father disowned because he became a gangster. Written by Will Gilbert

Fruit Chan is the best Hong Kong film director
3 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Fruit Chan is undoubtedly the best Hong Kong film director of noir.

Started with 'Made in Hong Kong'(1997), Chan's small budgeted Hong Kong trilogy series have been the most heart-touching movies. In Chan's movie, you're confronted with hard-working, low-earning people live behind the sky high buildings in this capitalistic island of Oriental Pearl. Most dream dies as the day goes by.

'Durian,Durian' is also a must see.
