Qu nian yan hua te bie duo (The Longest Summer) / THE LONGEST SUMMER
It Happened Yesterday

Set in the summer of 1997, the movie follows the life of an ex-marine whose unit is disbanded during the months leading up to and following the handover of Hong Kong to China. Unable to find a job, he joins his brother working for a crime boss as a driver. Unsatisfied with their lot in life, the brothers and some friends plot to rob a bank where one of the ex-marines is working as a guard. But the heist goes tragically wrong when they come across another group of more violent robbers.
FRUIT CHAN Three of his five films as a director to date belong to a non-documentary series set during the UK handover of Hong Kong to China. Using screenplays written by himself and developed as per typical Asian cinema, Chan introduces sufficient accessories to give his work the elements befitting of a cinema based on political ideas that prevail over the simple and ordinary outside appearance.
