| Another intelligent allegory from Andy Lau
I was expecting this to be a lightweight comedy but was pleasantly surprised by the subtext of this movie, which used the themes of maturation and family to address larger issues of Hong Kong's modernization and its relationship with Mainland China and the West.

In this respect, "Wait Till You're Older" resembles "Infernal Affairs," another film that uses a standard narrative to hint at larger issues. It is not quite at the same level of sophistication in either plot or metaphor, but it is a much deeper movie than one might be led to believe.

I don't think that I have to spell out the two sets of relationships here. They become quite obvious to the viewer with a little reflection.
