1988 / 94min / DCP

DIRECTOR: ANN HUI

CAST: BRIGITTE LIN , DAVID NG, GEORGE LAM

Ca Mei (Brigitte Lin) is a 40-year-old social worker who, upon embarking on a passionate relationship with 18-year-old Tian-Ah (David Ng), is revisited by memories of an earlier affair when she was on the other side of the age gap with an older, married professor (George Lam). A sort of love triangle across time with Lin, exceptional, playing both a youth and a woman approaching middle-age, her romantic reckoning taking place against two different periods of political upheaval. A red-blooded, unapologetic melodrama from Hui, a master of the form.
