Master director Yonfan makes his animation debut with this sensuous, passionate story of a young man’s sentimental education. Hong Kong, 1967: as leftists riot in the streets, Ziming is attending university and negotiating a tricky situation - he’s got strong feelings for both young Meiling and her worldly mother Mrs. Yu. Featuring hand-drawn images that evoke ardour, lust, and bittersweet nostalgia, this is the director’s love letter to his home and to cinema; as such, it’s an absolute triumph.
