A Tale of Three Cities (Chinese: 三城记) is a 2015 Chinese-Hong Kong war romance film directed by Mabel Cheung. The film is about the real love story of two people (Charles and Lee-Lee Chan, parents of Jackie Chan) who met in Wuhu during the Second Sino-Japanese War in the 1930s, separated in Shanghai during the Chinese Civil War in the 1940s, and finally reunited in Hong Kong in the 1950s while their children from previous marriages were left behind in mainland China (whom they would not see again until 38 years later).[1][2][3][4][5][6] Jackie Chan reportedly "cried and cried, until the end of the film" when he watched the film by himself.[7]
