| memorable and well done
This movie was shown last night (10/30/98) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as part of a G. W. Pabst retrospective. The date of the movie was 1938 and it was very evocative of the period. Although shot in Saigon (instead of Hong Kong), it appeared to be very reflective of what I imagine was the Hong Kong atmosphere at the time - including good references to the many Russian ex-patriots there and their desperation. Not a perfect movie but one to be seen, if available.
