Echoes of the Rainbow (2010, Hong Kong)

Starring: Simon Yam, Sandra Ng, Paul Chun, Aarif Lee
Director: Alex Law
Genre: Drama
Language: Cantonese
My Rating: 4/5

The film depicts Hong Kong in the striving 60s, as seen through the eyes of a child. Nosy, naughty and always running into trouble, the kid observes with wit and humor the ever changing society of Hong Kong.

The story revolves around the kid and his family – a working class father, a happy-go-lucky mother, an aspiring, starry-eyed elder brother, and our young protagonist himself. Through the elder brother’s first romance, and the family’s encounters with love, hope, failure, death and rebirth, we travel back to a place called old Hong Kong, a time we’ll always remember, and a place we have always called home.
