Film description

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.
