1955 / Digital Beta / 111 mins / Rating TBC

In Cantonese with English and Chinese subtitles

Parents’ Hearts is widely considered to be one of the best Hong Kong films of all time. The film follows a modern nuclear family’s struggle to secure a better future for its children. The film is set in harsh post-war conditions, where the father finds himself unemployed when his opera troupe is forced to close due to the bad economy and dwindling popularity of Cantonese opera. Working at the peak of his directorial career, Chun Kim’s tender rendition of the family’s predicament is perfectly complemented by opera superstar Ma Si-tsang’s heartfelt performance.
