  • eric gould's rating of the film A Side, B Side, Seaside

    Simple adventures can be had just a ferry crossing away from Hong Kong's urban bustle and the triads, crime bosses and corruption from HK action films can be left behind. A Side, B Side, Seaside is in part an homage to Takeshi Kitano's A Scene at the Sea and youthful coming-of-age. Two stories, like sides of a record, round out narratives about young friends and a shared bond on Cheung Chau Island. Give it a spin.
