I heard that it was a good movie, but had my doubts. After watching, I can say that it is amazing crafted movie. The structure and cinematography enhanced the story and the acting was superb. If you enjoy realistic dramas that tackle tough issues, I recommend it.

Though not very subtle in presenting its thesis, the story is generally suspenseful and well-told by young HK actor and director Tsang (Soul Mate).

Better Days may slide into somewhat hollow artfulness, but it’s hard not to be moved by its genuine concerns.
