Hold you tight 1997 trailer

Hold You Tight (Chinese: 愈快樂愈墮落; pinyin: Yù kuàilè yù duòluò) is a 1998 Hong Kong romantic drama film directed by Stanley Kwan. The film features full-frontal male nudity.


It is Stanley Kwan's seventh feature film, and he says that his previous two documentaries A Personal Memoir of Hong Kong and Yang ± Yin: Gender in Chinese Cinema had strong influences on making this film: "Both of them evolved from my thoughts on family background and upbringing, my career as a filmmaker, my sexual orientation and my identity as a Chinese man living in a British colony. The film was written for Hong Kong actress Chingmy Yau who plays two roles, a young executive and a worldly boutique owner."


  • Chingmy Yau as Ah Moon/Rosa Gao
  • Sunny Chan as Fung Wai
  • Eric Tsang as Tong
  • Lawrence Ko as A-che
  • Sandra Ng Kwan Yue as Video Dealer
  • Tony Rayns as Rosa's Friend

The following year, it won the Award of the Pestalozzi Children's Village Foundation at the Fribourg International Film Festival and the Film of Merit award at the Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards.
