As Tears Go By
Press Play to start
The 15th edition of the Five Flavours Asian Film Festival will feature, for the first time, a seat reservation system at cinema screenings for holders of passes and stationary accreditations. 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, 16 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 16, 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 Wong Kar Wai's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Wah is a debt collector, and despite his young age is respected in the Hong Kong underworld. Unfortunately, his protege, Fly, has a talent for falling foul of all the wrong people. Meanwhile, Wah's distant relative, the delicate Ngor appears at his scarcely furnished apartment, unaware of her cousin's profession. Is it possible that her calm, understanding eyes are hiding a rebellious soul?
Won Kar Wai's debut is an auteur take on gangster films – a genre which enjoyed its golden era in Hong Kong in the late 1980s. The director uses the stylistic of action cinema as a tool to tell a very personal, emotional story. The grasping, vibrant form harmonizes perfectly with the melancholy and melodramatic tension.
