It is a very "Hong Kong" movie which a lot of Hong Kong filmmakers don't do anymore. It's a film with social awareness and consciousness. It speaks directly to the younger generation and the director shows a great understanding of what youth really means to those lost souls a few months before they finished with the first public examination of their life. It's a truthful and honest display of youth in Hong Kong. The angst, the confusion and those little moments when they were struggling to understand adulthood were beautifully shown. The dialog definitely came from a keen observation of the real and sometimes brutal world of teenagers. The acting is very natural. In her first directorial debut, Heiward Mak proved herself to be one up and coming Asian director to watch.
