Aroview: An excellent example of the other side of Hong Kong movie-making. Set in 1960, Leslie Cheung plays a disillusioned, spoiled youth who desperately seeks the identity of his birth mother. The narrative might be vague, but the cinematography and ambitious direction simply force one to sit up and take notice.
