As usual in Hui's films, the personal and the political are stitched tightly together.

Unlike Hui's earlier films, such as A Simple Life (2011) ... this one has plenty of heart, but no soul.

It's Fang's transformation, embodied by Ms. Zhou's lean, cool authority, that carries the most weight, lending the proceedings an unforced feminist dimension, and reaffirming Ms. Hui's status as one of China's cinematic treasures.

Hui makes the most of her cast - boasting a notable number of Hong Kong Film Awards winners - to fashion an unapologetically human drama.

A film marked by strong performances - leads Zhou Xun and Deanie Ip in particular - and a poignant resonance which rings through to the territory's travails today.

A little-known chapter in Hong Kong's wartime history has been vividly re-created in "Our Time Will Come," a female-driven drama poignantly directed by Ann Hui.

Beyond the handful of obligatory escapades, gunfights and images of martyrdom, the film reveals itself as less a drama about extraordinary heroes than an illustration of life in a fallen city.
