Watch Glamorous Youth - Alternative Versions.
Glamorous Youth is a gloomy and artistic movie about the growth of a
Hong Kong boy who becomes a man in one year, Hong Kong people's
loneliness and loss of dreams, the glamour of youth, the problematic
relationship between typical Hong Kong men and typical Hong Kong ladies
and the changing relation between China and Hong Kong.
The film is set in 2006 and ends in 2007. After 10 years since the
handover to China, Hong Kong is on the surface a prosperous
international city, yet Hong Kong people value too much the importance
of money and spend too much time working, so our family members are
often neglected. As a result, most of us lack dreams and feel lonely.
We don't know what we live for.
Apart from the messages engaging Hong Kong people, I love the
cinematography and symbolic images e.g. the lighthouse with the light
off and the train linking China and Hong Kong. Local places like Chan
Nam Chong Memorial College, Cho Yiu Estate, Kwai Tsing Threatre, Cheung
Hang Estate, Kwai Chung Container Terminal, etc, can be seen. There are
also lots of beautiful scenes showing the Hong Kong skyline and
buildings which are sometimes deliberately made out of focus. They
symbolize the characters' emotions, e.g. a clear sky seen while
running, and convey a message that Hong Kong is prosperous on the
surface, but in fact we get lost in this concrete jungle and cannot see
our future clearly. Besides, the dark-yellow / dark-red rooms with a
sharp contrast between light and shadow, the black-and-white factory
and the dimly-lit wedding ceremony can highlight Hong Kong people's
loneliness. Moreover, the mirror in the flat is cleverly used to show
the inseparable, but alienated relationship between the father and his
The songs used fit the theme and mood of the movie very well, for
instance, The Pearl of the Orient. The Cantonese opera also points out
the importance of appreciating art.
The cast generally acts naturally and the actor who delivers the most
finely nuanced and convincing performance is Tai Bo who stars as the
main character's father undergoing middle-age crisis.
Nevertheless, the film can be more well-organized and focused.
Moreover, the teacher is a little bit preachy and implying his sexual
orientation seems unnecessary; so are the explicit sex scenes.
On the whole, it is a sincerely made melodrama which most Hong Kong
movie lovers can identify with. After the screening, the audience may
ponder on the gloomy future of Hong Kong where people are only obsessed
with money and forget about our dreams, without which we are only
walking skeletons without souls.
