Action/Adventure, Romance


Billed as a motorcycle kung fu love story, this film, the first for critic-turned-director Kelvin Tong, aptly captures the listless, pop culture-obsessed lives of Asia's youth. Boy (Benjamin Heng) works at a dead-end job while fantasizing about being a martial arts master.

After his buddy, Ah Gu (Joseph Cheong), who has ambitions of being a motorcycle gangster, gets involved in a drug deal that quickly goes south, he begs Boy for help. Meanwhile, Boy happens upon the shy, though beautiful Girl (Alvina Toh), a student who works at her mother's copy shop. This film was screened at the 2000 Rotterdam Film Festival.
