Cherry Blossoms (1988)


Director: Fong Ling Ching

Starring: Chow Yun Fat, Fok Tak Wah, Wong Kwok Ling

In the last moments of his life, China's famed poet, Dafu (Chow Yun Fat) remembers his youth as a student in Japan. The most important people in his life were his best friend Lkada, and Lung-Erin, the girl they became rivals over. Finally, Dafu is forced to sacrifice his own happiness for Lung-Erin's safety.

Chow Yun Fat has a small role in the beginning and ending of this film, which moves very slowly and ponderously, carefully examining Ya Dafu's days living as a Chinese man in Japan and the contrast between his personality and that, as perceived by writer and director Eddie Fong, of Ya Dafu's Japanese contemporaries.

Cherry Blossoms received a very positive review in Stephen Teo's book: Hong Kong Cinema: The Extra Dimensions. Teo writes: "a lustrous evocation of Japan in the period 1910-20. ... seethes with an atmosphere of repressed desire .... The clash of national identity and individual feelings infuses the film with a mesmerizing quality while enriching it with political themes"
