Comrades: Almost a Love Story
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Peter Chan
1996 / 118min / 35mm
The story of a touch-and-go romance between two Mainland expats, earnest Northerner Leon Lai—one of Cantopop’s “Four Heavenly Kings”—and Guangzhou-born wheeler-dealer Maggie Cheung, Chan’s plaintive drama follows its leads from youth to maturity, upper-class security to the slums, and between Hong Kong and New York City. Along the way they’ll bid bittersweet goodbyes to the dreams of youth, to the old Fragrant Harbor that William Holden once visited, and to the plaintive voice of Teresa Teng, which echoes through the film.
