Review of “At The End of Daybreak” from Screen
You just got to love the wry summary reviews of the American trade rags. “Wide festival exposure and Ho’s reputation should translate into modest commercial sales and a lengthy afterlife on DVD.”
I guess that says it all, more or less, about “At the end of day break” by Ho Yuhang, but nevertheless the whole review is here.
I personally find it hard to believe that this film was sold to any other Southeast Asian territory (with the possible exception of Singapore), as the article claims.

Sales to territorities in Western Europe seem much more convincing…
