Our Time Will Come
DIRECTOR: ANN HUI
CAST: ZHOU XUN, WALLACE HUO, EDDIE PENG
Ann Hui, a Hong Kong auteur whose output marks her an equal of Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark, returns with this tense, tough historical drama set amidst the Japanese occupation during World War II, in which school teacher Zhou Xun gradually commits to violent action on the side of the resistance. Anchored by Zhou’s steely performance and supporting work by Tony Leung, Our Time Will Come has the scope and masterful control of a female-centered Army of Shadows. Edited by legendary Eric Rohmer collaborator Mary Stephen.
