Film Review: A Nail Clipper Romance (2017) - Hong Kong / China

A Nail Clipper Romance (2017) - Hong Kong / China Reviewed by Andrew Chan Cinematographer Jason Kwan is a wonderful talent and it is almost timely that he makes his directorial debut in the ridiculously themed, yet ultimately satisfying coming of age - A Nail Clipper Romance.

"Colour of the Game" revokes many of Johnnie To's cinematic shoot outs and even many of the cast members including Simon Yam, Lam Suet and many other supporting players.

The gangsters and undercover genre defines the Hong Kong cinematic 90s and this film shows that there is still an...
