Revolution is for the sake of love, yet love has lost its way in the ups and downs of the revolution. For years, Japanese folk singer Doji Morita’s song Our Mistake was thought to be a love song. Yet it actually reminisces the lost youth of a generation who participated in the student movement. Winner of First Feature Film Initiative, veteran actor Chan Chit-Man’s directorial debut takes off as a love story of youth that connects the Umbrella Movement and the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement. As the personal meets the political, four university students must weather the storm in the midst of social turmoil. Whispers and embraces, gazes and walks, the happenstance between people in the occupied area are depicted in these fictional and non-fictional images. Perhaps it will cause you to look back at the highs and lows of the past few years when you thought revolution was going to succeed yet you ended up as strangers to each other. As people scattered, one realized that youthful regret is inevitable. The performances of young actors Will Or, Sofiee Ng and Yoyo Fung are sincere and moving. In these bewildering times, people and society have undergone dramatic changes. One can only see it as a form of training, and try not to dwell on being right or wrong.
