Entertaining Sentamental piece, but contains slanted view
4 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A touching life and love story of a family and childhood sweethearts, it is set in the rapidly changing backdrop of Hong Kong as it grew as a city and returned to China.

The human drama leads to an entertaining story, but as person who grew up and identifies as being from Hong Kong, I can see the obvious bias in representing the city's culture. The film highlights various significant historical historical events in Hong Kong, but conveniently skips over the international role of the city and the impact of the uprising leading up to the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Still a tear jerker and brings back great sentiments about a unique place which will never be the same, but it could have been much more neutral. Makes me question the political motivations and purpose behind this film.
