LOVE AFTER LOVE 第一炉香

In Ann Hui’s latest period piece, an adaptation of Eileen Chang’s first published short story, Ge Weilong, a young girl from Shanghai, travels to Hong Kong in pursuit of her education. In order to pay for her studies, she asks her aunt, Mrs. Liang, for help. Mrs. Liang is leading a shady life and Weilong gradually becomes her aunt’s puppet in a game of luring rich and powerful men. As it happens, Weilong gets genuinely attracted to playboy George Chiao, whose aim is to marry a wealthy girl to maintain his own high-end class lifestyle.
