A real murder case which was complicated by the minage ' trois relationship of the victim and the main suspects. As different witnesses narrated their conflicting stories, the case seemed set to lead to nowhere; especially when the real identity of the dead person was finally discovered. Written by
The movie is based on a true story where a young couple was brutally murdered by a madman in the 70's Hong Kong. Sylvia Cheung plays the dead girl's best friend and is trying to find out what's really happened to her friend. As the story unfolds, nothing is what it initially seems. Ann Hui's first and probably her best movie. The movie beautifully captures the atmosphere of the 70's Hong Kong, where the conflicting impacts of East and West were still obvious. A must-see for noir fans.
