Movie Info

A poor film projectionist witnesses forty years of Hong Kong history in this socially themed family melodrama starring acclaimed Hong Kong character Anthony Wong. Idealistic leftist Zuo Kong (Wong) has been threading the projector since the 1960s, and from the riots of those early years through the prosperity of the 1970s, the growth of the 1980s, and the tensions of the 1990s, there's little he hasn't seen from his cramped perch behind the bulb. A modest family man whose political beliefs at times seem in direct conflict with his home life, Kong struggles to remain a loving husband and a good father as he gradually shrinks away from doctrinaire idealism.

Seems to follow the style used in the movie Hooked On You..... Regardless this movie is still must watch!

Wow, this film pretty much hit everything I hate about Hong Kong cinema when it's at it's worst. Melodramatic and all over the place, there wasn't one character that I could give a rat's ass about. However, I did notice a few Chinese (I believe they were, of course I don't know for sure) people in the audience who loved it and a few women were crying. So this could be the case of different cultures, where cinema tactics that would make the Westerner roll his/her eyes touches a nerve in the East. Anyway, whether I'm cynical or not, my first instinct would be to warn anyone to stay far, far away from this one. Oh yeah, and also it was commissioned by the Chinese government for the 10 year anniversary of the handover, so it's really, really pro China.
