Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Samson Chiu Leung-chun spins this engaging coming-of-age tale set in the early 1980s. Teenager Yeung Shing-bo (John Tang Yat-kwan) starts to feel the first stirrings of sexual interest when his friend Ting-ting (Ellen Lo Oi-lun) doffs her glasses. Suddenly she is not simply one of the guys. Unfortunately, she is already dating an older thuggish classmate. To make matters worse for the hero and his pressing urges, Shing-bo's family's new boarder is a sultry club girl, and his friend -- who seems destined to be a triad -- is pimping out his girlfriend and asks Shing-bo to initiate her; then his mom gets a job at his school. In spite of all this, he pines for Ting-ting. This film was followed up by Under the Skirt (1994) and Yesterday You, Yesterday Me (1997).
