It's a world where, when push comes to shove, hoodlums could (and would) count on the police to save the day, and when the characters' unruly days would be just a painful chapter in their rite of passage for a more secure and better adulthood.It's a mix which will play well to a younger Hong Kong demographic seeking, all at once, visual thrills and some kind of narrative closure, but the film – which premiered at last month's Hong Kong Asian Film Festival, and is now being shown on press rounds to position its place for a February release and then the Hong Kong Film Awards in April – also represents a missed opportunity for Yung to advance this misbehaving-teens subgenre by showing how this problem is never going to neatly fade away, and that it's as cyclical as the long line of films about the issue being produced by Hong Kong filmmakers since the 1960s with Patrick Lung'sdoesn't hint, at least slightly, on this.
The case is the second bestiality conviction in Hong Kong.
In February 13, 2000, a 48-year-old man was caught having sex with a dog in a public toilet and was jailed for two months on a guilty plea.
The father of three admitted that he had lured the two-year-old stray animal using bread in Tung Chung on southwest Hong Kong's Lantau Island on his arrest on February 9.
He then pleaded guilty in the court on April 7, saying that it was a 'momentary lapse of judgement' and the dog did not resist at the time, according to Hong Kong Free Press.
Chung, who is a former construction worker, said that he had bathed the dog in a stream before having unprotected sex with the animal on February 1.
