Summary
  Originally scheduled to open at the Shanghai World Expo, screened at Cannes Film Festival.

Shanghai, a fast-changing metropolis, a port city where people come and go. Shanghai has hosted all kinds of people revolutionaries, capitalists, politicians, soldiers, artists, and gangsters. Shanghai has also hosted revolutions, assassinations, love stories. After the Chinese Communists' victory in 1949, thousands of Shanghaiers left for Hong Kong and Taiwan. To leave meant being separated from home for thirty years; to stay meant suffering through the Cultural Revolution and China's other political disasters. (Cannes) Hong Kong - 119m
