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.

a kind of bird with no legs

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

own mother, right?

Go and find her yourself

for so many years,

Anything I want to say,

I have said it long ago

I didn't say it before because

I don't want you to leave

And I won't say it now still

Cause I don't think it's worth to

I tell you,

...what can I get if

you go to find her?


And you will forget me as well

Why are you starring at me?

OK, I want you to hate me

At least, you won't forget me

Maybe, I will tell you some day

If not, never dream so

Alright, I will wait for

that moment

I think so, she used to be

a prostitute before

above our garage

Do you know

what is in his mind?

I don't know

But I know what is in your mind


Don't fall in love with me

It's so late, what're you doing here?

Waiting for my friend

What's the matter?

A girl downstairs said

that she was your friend,

you'd better go & have a look

Excuse me

Why do you come for me?

I'd like to take back my stuffs

Come up then

I'd like to stay with you

What for?

I'm not suitable for you

I don't like marriage

like the others do

I don't mind

I just want to stay with you

Why are you so attentive to me?

You can't please me

for my whole life!

You won't be happy to stay with me

Have you ever loved me?

I don't know how many women

else I'd fall for in my life

I won't know whom I love

most till the end of my life

Wait here

I'll collect the things for you

Somebody's home?

Who is outside?
