Storyline

1941. Hong Kong is under Japanese occupation. The anti-Japanese Dongjiang guerilla unit is tasked with rescuing cultural figures and extracting them from the besieged city. Primary school teacher, Fang Lan and her mother are trying to live out this difficult period in a small run-down flat in Wanchai. After the schools are shut down, Lan unwittingly finds herself involved in the guerillas' mission to save novelist Mao Dun. In the process, she meets Blackie Lau, the intrepid sharpshooter captain of the guerillas' Urban and Firearms unit. Taking notice of Lan's calm, smart nature, Blackie recruits her to join the guerillas. Worried for her daughter's safety, Lan's mother volunteers to take Lan's place as a courier, only to be arrested on the job. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Wing, who now works for the Japanese.

Well made film, but nothing new to offer
1 December 2017 | by JithindurdenSee all my reviews

A well made drama set during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong focusing on the smaller moments of lives of people involved in the resistance. I have seen so many films about India's freedom struggle as well as the communist resistance during the National emergency in India that there wasn't a single thing that I wasn't familiar with in this film even though it talks about an entirely different country and situation. Still its a well-shot film with great production design which was at times a bit too theatrical that chronicles the life and struggles of the Hong Kong resistance members.
