An Autumn's Tale
Press Play to start
At the 17th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 14 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 14, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
You can use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Jenny comes to New York at a cost of great sacrifice, but with a clear plan – she wants to join her boyfriend, get into acting school, an enjoy the energy of the new city. A distant cousin picks her up from the airport in his wreck of a car and offers her a room in a picturesque hovel in the middle of an immigrant quarter. Sampan, as his buddies call him, is a slacker and a good-for-nothing with a heart of gold. When not everything goes according to Jenny's plan, he becomes her guide through the labyrinth of an unknown city.
The second part of Mabel Cheung's migration trilogy is a bitter-sweet portrait of two different personalities that are slowly attuning to each other. It is also a postcard from the colorful, pre-gentrification New York of the 1980s, and its smoky alleys filled with the dreams of people who came there from all over the world.
The quality of this melancholic romantic comedy lies in the brilliant script, the steady hand of the director, and the fabulous acting duo. The roles Chow Yun-fat and Cherie Cheung created in the film went down in cinema history.
One of the most important Hong Kong directors, rooted in the New Wave. Before making her first film, she already gained experience working for television. Her Shaw Brothers Studio debut, "The Illegal Immigrant," became the first part of the migrant trilogy that brought Cheung wide recognition.
Over the span of her career, she worked with the biggest Hong Kong stars, including Maggie Cheung, Sammo Hung, and Shu Qi. In 2013, she made "Traces of a Dragon," a documentary film about Jackie Chan.
Her last film to date, the 2022 documentary "To My Nineteen-Year-Old Self," enjoyed a warm reception, but was also a subject of controversy. The director used some of the interviews without the consent of the interlocutors.
