RED SEA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
”Acclaimed director Derek Tsang strikes a raw and delicate chord in a modern romance that draws on “Romeo and Juliet” with hints of “Bonnie and Clyde”, simmered together in the hothouse atmosphere of a Chinese high school. Tsang’s brutal portrayal of the psychological and physical violence of contemporary youth culture is cast with unbearable realism and grit, highlighting the unseen wounds faced by victims of abuse. Fiercely intimate throughout, the camera trails the characters at close range, highlighting the swirling anxieties that shape their trauma: exam pressures, bullying, suicide, class disparity, social stigmas, and isolation. Within this hostile pressure cooker, two unlikely heroes find each other, their worlds colliding to devastating and tender effect. Nian, relentlessly bullied, meets small-time criminal Bei. Desperate to save themselves and each other, their reckless love lands them in the turbulence of a murder investigation. Poignant and riveting, an epic tale about fighting for a better life in an uncompromising world.”
