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.[1] The film features full-frontal male nudity.[2]

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."[3]



In 1998, Hold You Tight won the FIPRESCI Prize — Special Mention and Silver Screen Award for Best Actor at the Singapore International Film Festival, the Golden Horse Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Alfred Bauer Prize and Teddy Award at the 48th Berlin International Film Festival.[4] 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.[5]
