Schedule

Having lost his fortune and loved ones because of inveterate gambling, Gao Ye walks out from prison to face a cruel and lonely world. Intrigued by Momo, a beautiful hooker who mysteriously knocks on his door, he involves her in a plan intended to recoup all of his past losses. But things immediately spin out of control, and they instead find themselves enmeshed in a much larger scheme — one devised not by Gao Ye but by the criminal underworld. Further dimming his hopes, Gao Ye belatedly realizes that Momo is pursuing her own hidden agenda. Will they survive this one fateful night to see another sunrise? The Hollywood Reporter hails “One Night Only” as an “impressive directorial debut”: “Mixing suspense with romance in an uncommonly stylish noirish blend, ‘One Night Only’ marks its tyro filmmaker as a talent to watch while showcasing the acting talents of its charismatic stars, Aaron Kwok (‘Port of Call,’ ‘Cold War’) and Zishan Yang (‘So Young,’ ‘Miss Granny’).”
