Days of Being Wild

Synopsis: Set in 1960, the film centres on the young, boyishly handsome Yuddy, who learns from the drunken ex-prostitute who raised him that she is not his real mother. Hoping to hold onto him, she refuses to divulge the name of his real birth mother. The revelation shakes Yuddy to his very core, unleashing a cascade of conflicting emotions. Two women have the bad luck to fall for Yuddy. One is a quiet lass named Su Lizhen who works at a sports arena, while the other is a glitzy showgirl named Mimi. Perhaps due to his unresolved Oedipal issues, he passively lets the two compete for him, unable or unwilling to make a choice. As Lizhen slowly confides her frustration to a cop named Tide, he falls for her. The same is true for Yuddy's friend Zeb, who falls for Mimi. Later, Yuddy learns of his birth mother's whereabouts and heads out to the Philippines.

Keep your promise to call, OK?


I know you won't call me

I will

You don't even memorize

my number!

It's written down, why should I

keep this in mind then?

How about if it lost?

if it is lost,

I may be lost too

Go & lost it, if you dare!

If you lose it,

I will cut your face!

Stop saying that to me

You're great!

Where there's an illness,

there's a cure!

Are you going home?

I'll call you a cab

I don't want to go home now

Well, stay here then

Go to hell!

Good morning

Why you still sitting here?

Why don't you go home?

You haven't gone home too

I'm not going to talk to you


Have I ever met you before?

I don't think so

But, have you ever noticed me?

You know it pretty well

What's your job?

My job?

Turn the volume of the

radio louder please

Any idea? Got it?

Not yet

Dance once more for me OK?

Do you want to take

advantage from me?

Hey... What's your name?

Call me Mimi

I've heard that there was

a kind of bird with no legs

It could fly and fly only...

When it got tired,

it slept in the wind

This kind of bird

could land only once

That was the time it died


Come here, I want to talk to you

Excuse me

Hey, who is she?

What do you mean?


Why did you beat him?

He tried to cheat your money!

Who said so?

No one

If not why should he be with you?

How old is he?

And how old are you?

You are not young!

Right, he does it for money,

but he can make me happy

Have you ever made me happy

after so many years?

Have you?

Right, I never made you

happy before

Then, let's be unhappy together

What do you want?

You know it pretty well

I've told you many times

I won't tell you anymore

You want to find your

own mother, right?

Go and find her yourself

if you can

I've taken care of you

for so many years,
