Hong Kong cinema legend Yonfan makes his first foray into animation with this richly evocative and seductive nostalgia trip into the Hong Kong of his youth. Set in 1967, the film follows a university student caught between the affections of his young new tutee and her elegant mother. Featuring a unique 2D hand-drawn aesthetic, this gorgeously rendered love letter to the crossroads of art and lust captures Hong Kong during its most promising, and most tumultuous, eras. Best Screenplay winner at Venice.
