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.
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.
... crackingly choreographed fight scenes erupt often enough to keep the film's 130 minutes moving swiftly.
The evocative cinematography by Nelson Lik-wai Yu, habitual first choice of Jia Zhangke, is one of the film's highest pleasures.
The film capitalizes on its characters' amateurism, which imbues their life-threatening cause with a desperation that easily translates into tension in every scene.
Has plenty of heart, but no soul.
Hui makes the most of her cast - boasting a notable number of Hong Kong Film Awards winners - to fashion an unapologetically human drama.
A film marked by strong performances - leads Zhou Xun and Deanie Ip in particular - and a poignant resonance which rings through to the territory's travails today.
