Slow paced drama about essentially nothing...

I stumbled upon the 2017 movie "In Your Dreams" (aka "Yi ching chun dik ming yi") here in 2021. And needless to say that with my fascination with the Hong Kong cinema, then of course I found the time to sit down to watch writer and director Wai Ching Tam's 2017 movie.

Sure, the synopsis for the movie sounded interesting and it was definitely something that helped to sell the movie. But wow, this movie was bland, mundane, slow paced and downright uneventful. And I will even go as far as to saying that the movie was sort of far out there, bordering on being tripping at times.

The storyline promised a lot, given the synopsis, but writer and director Wai Ching Tam didn't manage to deliver a movie that proved as interesting or entertaining as the synopsis made the movie sound like. Sure, I managed to sit through the entire ordeal - and yeah, it was an ordeal - hoping that the movie would pick up its pace and become better and more entertaining, but it just never did that.

This movie was essentially about to awkward existences in the form of a teenager with a crush on his mature substitute teacher, and the substitute teacher's inability to deal and cope with her husbands adultery. Sounded interesting enough. But writer and director Wai Ching Tam just dragged out everything to a stretch where it become a nuisance to sit through, and nothing overly interesting actually happened throughout the course of the movie.

It should be said, though, that the movie have some strong and believable acting performances by the two leads; Carina Lau (playing the substitute teacher) and Siu Hin Ng (playing the student).

"In Your Dreams" was a disappointing movie, though I managed to sit through the entire movie. I will say, though, that this is definitely not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time.

My rating of this 2017 Hong Kong drama lands on a mere three out of ten stars.
