Critic Reviews for Our Time Will Come

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

An important figure in the Hong Kong film renaissance of the 1980s, [director Ann] Hui remains under-appreciated abroad. Like many of her films, Our Time Will Come requires and rewards patience.

Like most of Hui's films, Our Time's subtlety is entrancing, withholding big dramatic moments to consider everyday behavior. This strategy speaks to Hui's tremendous gifts of directing actors and establishing a sense of place.

A surprisingly affecting call to arms.

Jul 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A little-known chapter in Hong Kong's wartime history has been vividly re-created in "Our Time Will Come," a female-driven drama poignantly directed by Ann Hui.

As usual in Hui's films, the personal and the political are stitched tightly together.

It's Fang's transformation, embodied by Ms. Zhou's lean, cool authority, that carries the most weight, lending the proceedings an unforced feminist dimension, and reaffirming Ms. Hui's status as one of China's cinematic treasures.
