大茶飯 (Gangster Payday) (Blu-ray release 2015-1-30) is a Hong Kong movie about a love triangle involving a gangster leader, his subordinate, and a woman who is struggling to manage a restaurant.  Although the movie integrates significant and notable elements of Hong Kong society, and we see great acting from most of the cast, these do not help make it a great romance movie, since some of the screen time are left for gangster conflicts.  It may be a worthwhile effort to reflect on changes of Hong Kong society, but as a romance/gangster movie it is not entertaining enough.
