MY HEART IS THAT ETERNAL ROSE is an ultra-stylish Hong Kong crime drama from 1989, which IMO has been chronically overlooked for years but now has finally received a bare bones blu ray release.
It's a powerful blend of the Heroic Bloodshed and Film Noir genres. The then Canto RomCom star, Kenny Bee, plays against type as a hardened professional hitman. Rising stars Joey Wong (A Chinese Ghost Story) and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (Bullet in the Head) co-star with meaty roles.
