A once-legendary hitman from the ‘60s is today reduced to working as a noodle chef. As society and age itself deliver further blows to his dignity, he and his cohorts come across an ingenious plan that’s sure to give their lives meaning again. This clever pastiche of genre trappings—call it a bittersweet humanist dramedy—extends messages of hope and compassion to audiences of every age. Veteran actors Patrick Tse, Petrina Fung, and Lam Suet deliver delightfully delicious performances that showcase their indelible charisma. Imbued with endearing nostalgia, Time is a clarion call to future generations.
