Days of Being Wild

This is a Chinese movie, set in the 1950s, where a single wild young man ruins the life of everybody around him. I don't understand Chinese (other than the occasional Wah! that I hear from my sister-in-law) so I was relying on the subtitles and there were a couple of places where they clearly missed time passing, and I had to back the DVD up to figure out what was happening. It won an award at a Hong Kong Film festival, but it didn't really click with me.
