The sumptuousness, romance, and derring-do that usually characterize wartime cloak-and-dagger stories only occasionally pop into Hui’s low-key take on the period, which is more concerned with how people (especially women) keep living in times of war; her unlikely roster of collaborators . . . reflects the film’s more humanist ends. . . . Hui remains under-appreciated abroad. Like many of her films, Our Time Will Come requires and rewards patience.

Like most of Hui’s films, Our Time’s subtlety is entrancing, withholding big dramatic moments to consider everyday behavior. This strategy speaks to Hui’s tremendous gifts of directing actors and establishing a sense of place. Her characters make serious moral decisions based on their connection to where they live and how they perform simple actions.
