Three generations of a well-to-do family face the burdens and pleasures of daily life in Hong Kong.

"Aberdeen" is the name of a district known in Cantonese as "Little Hong Kong". This new film by hitmaker Pang Ho-cheung (Love in the Buff, Vulgaria) uses the setting to take a witty, dreamy, all-embracing view of contemporary life in a society in transition. A smoothly entertaining, sometimes poignant, magnificently-filmed family drama that encompasses three generations and moves between reality and fantasy. [PG]
