SYNOPSIS

Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at this year’s Venice Film Festival, this animated feature film is set in the turbulent Hong Kong of 1967. An undergraduate finds himself falling in love with the mother of the teenage girl whom he is tutoring. This clandestine desire leads to a complex series of courtships, and transgressive lust that is meticulously portrayed in this visualised ’60s setting.

Yonfan’s debut animated film gathers a star-studded cast with Sylvia Chang as the mother fighting to contain her desires before elegantly giving in; Zhao Wei as her confident and modern daughter; and cameo appearances by Ann Hui and Fruit Chan with the latter as a cat no less.
