Glass Tears (2001)
Director: Joe Ma
Kwok, Lo Lit, Chui Tien-You, Carrie Ng, Tats Lau
Glass Tears offers a relatively grim
view of life in modern Hong Kong. An extremely uncommunicative set of
parents (Tats Lau Yi-Dat and Carrie Ng Ka-Lai) are worried about their
missing daughter Ah Cho.
They ask her grandfather (Lo Lieh) to
delve into the Hong Kong teen subculture to look for her. The
combination of craggy Lo Lieh and the exuberant Zeny Kwok (as Ah Cho's
friend P) is quite engaging. As the search continues, we are shown many
quirks of the characters.
