Comrades: Almost a Love Story 甜蜜蜜

Saturday, March 3, 2018

This bittersweet romantic drama of two people torn between love for each other and duty to the others who love them sweeps from mainland China to vibrant Hong Kong to New York as two lives inexorably intertwine.

His relationship with Li Chiao, an ambitious migrant from Guangzhou, begins out of mutual need and develops into friendship ... then love. But Xiao-Jun's loyalty to his betrothed and Li Chiao's desire for financial success keep the lovers apart as they follow their dreams in freewheeling Hong Kong.
