My fondest dream is that it will be the date movie that breaks up couples nationwide. Maybe people will walk out of there and think, ‘Maybe not. I don’t know if I know you well enough.’

The Ah Fei movies of the 1950s featured characters sporting James Dean hairstyles and mannerisms, but not all of them were meant to be heroes. The term “Ah Fei” denotes a young hoodlum, a delinquent or scapegrace in Cantonese. “Fei” literally means “fly, ” a metaphor for youth old enough to sprout wings and fly away from controlling parents, and once flown, usually degenerates into socially unacceptable modes of behaviour. The term is time-specific, being generally in use in the 1950s and 60s.

Days of Being Wild rather self-consciously alludes to the Ah Fei genre: first, in its Cantonese title A Fei Zhengzhuan (The Story of an Ah Fei), which was incidentally the Chinese title for Rebel Without a Cause when it was released in Hong Kong. Second, Yuddy alludes to Ah Fei metaphorically in a monologue early in the film: “I heard tell that in this world, there’s a bird without legs. It can only fly and fly. When it’s tired it sleeps in the wind. It lands on earth only once in its life. That is when it dies.” The bird and flight metaphor is already implicit in the Ah Fei label, which Yuddy obviously wears with some pride, and The Story of an Ah Fei is his story.

No photograph or portfolio of photographs can unfold, go further, and further still, as do The Ascent (1977), by the Ukrainian director Larisa Shepitko, the most affecting film about the sadness of war I know, and an astounding Japanese documentary, Kazuo Hara’s The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches on (1987), the portrait of the ‘deranged’ veteran of the Pacific war, whose life’s work is denouncing Japanese war crimes from a sound truck he drives through the streets of Tokyo and paying most unwelcome visits to his former superior officers, demanding that they apologize for crimes, such as the murder of American prisoners in the Philippines, which they either ordered or condoned.
