Movie Info

During the rise of the materialistic comfort of life in the 1960s, there emerges an undercurrent of danger in Hong Kong. No.7 Cherry Lane tells the tale of Ziming, a Hong Kong University undergraduate, entangled between his amorous feelings for a self-exiled mother Mrs Yu from Taiwan in the White Terror period, and her beautiful daughter Meiling. He takes them to different movies and through a series of magical moments on the big screen, forbidden passions are revealed. And the era coincides with Hong Kong's turbulent times of 1967.

Critic Reviews for No.7 Cherry Lane (Ji Yuan Tai Qi Hao)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

It's the superior blend of animation styles and the sometimes provocative approach to sexuality that make "No. 7 Cherry Lane" a perfect destination for lovers of adventurous adult animation.

Consider this film a master class in world-building, a bewildering but poignant dream - one that will leave you with plenty of burning questions.

Intellectually intoxicating and stylistically sumptuous, this romantic oddity about the passage of time evokes the grand elegance of a Wong Kar-wai epic infused with mature droplets akin to anime like "Belladonna of Sadness" or "Millennium Actress."

Though a bit all over the place, there is no doubt that we are in the presence of a major filmmaker, giving us the sights and sounds - lush, drenched in desire, and a couple of blow-your-socks-off-sequences-of-carnal-pleasure - which are stayers.

A superbly imaginative work of adult animation.

The characters are executed in a familiar Asian anime mode, but they are facially inexpressive and sometimes physically inert, moving sluggishly and never really come to life...
