Synopsis

In the late 1990s, Macau is still officially a Portuguese colony and is about to be handed back to the Chinese. Lawlessness rules the streets and public order is patchy at best, with gangs of violent thugs roaming free. Into this fray steps an unsuspecting schoolgirl named Lin Qi Wei (Tang Rui Xue), whose family moves to Macau from Mainland China. She starts school in Macau, but soon becomes the subject of some cruel and brutal bullying. In the midst of her woes, she encounters a boy (Endy Chow) with a name almost identical to her own. He takes pity on Lin Qi Wei and protects her from harm. However, this new acquaintance proves to be a very troubled individual: Tormented by the murder of his policeman father, he has sworn to exact revenge on the mobsters who terrorize the city streets. Together, they begin to develop a shared lust for revenge...and develop a potentially lethal relationship. This film was adapted from a novel of the same name by the author Tai Pei. “Love Is Cold” is a 2018 movie that was directed by Fei Ho.
