Huinin Yinfa Dakbit Do Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Hong Kong director Fruit Chan's second film in a projected trilogy about the city's 1997 transfer of political power from England to China (following 1997's Fruit Chan), Huinin Yinfa Dakbit Do/The Longest Summer is an epic drama about a handful of friends who confront the ongoing political upheaval by taking up a life of crime. Three months before Hong Kong is to be returned to China, Ga-yin (Tony Ho) finds himself without a career when the Hong Kong Military Service Corps is disbanded. Ga-Yin and his buddies soon join forces with Ga-Yin's brother Ga-suen (Sam Lee), a petty criminal who wants to make a name for himself with the Triads, and together they hatch an elaborate scheme to rob a bank. The film's original Cantonese title roughly translates as "Last Year's Fireworks Were Especially Big." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
