Gangster Pay Day (大茶飯)

Blu-ray · Region AHong Kong · Komödie ⁄ Crime ⁄ Romanze · Sundream Motion Pictures · Hong Kong 2014

A comedy-melodrama hybrid, this film is a gangster story minus the traditional tragedy. Wong Kam-Kwei, a gang boss on the decline, overseeing bathhouses and karaoke bars, falls for a small restaurant owner, Mei. He begins to help her business, and learns that Mei is already in love with Leung, a member of his gang. He’s also like a brother to Kam-Kwei. When a rival gang hoping to steal his territory kills Leung, the only thing left for Kam-Kwei to do now is to protect Mei and avenge Leung. Gangster Pay Day is distinguished by its unique portrayal of its characters. Middle-aged Wong Kam-Kwei is a boss, but a sympathetic one, as he falls in love with Mei, and lives with guilt towards his mother at the same time. The characters surrounding him and Mei all seem to lack something. They were once the image of the strong, oppressive gangsters and now reduced to the status of restaurant employees. Yet they accept their new roles without fuss. The future of the gangsters in gangster films has always been depressing; they always end in tragedy. Wong Kam-Kei and his minions are also well aware that their future is dark. Thus they renounce violence and try to find common happiness.
