A satirical social commentary from the time of the economical bubble. A well made movie that jumps from the “day of the takeover” and Sheungs upbringing in a working class family in Hong-Kongs bay area. An interesting satire of the city and the people, and a goddamn messy and brutal slasher. Two in one. Check it out!
