Excellent film about youth in HK
13 November 2019 | by krzysiektomSee all my reviews

Decently directed and with a good script, with bitter-sweet description of the life in HK in late 1990s, elements of violence and brutality mixed with the sweetness of young friendship and love. The music choices are so so though, the soundtrack could be much better, but what can one expect with such a tiny budget. Considering it cost only about 80k USD, the film is phenomenal. Could become a cult classic with a wider distribution.
