Storyline

A young woman has a tragic accident, slipping on a skateboard and falling off the roof of a tall building. Koo Chi Ming, an insurance investigator, is sent to determine whether the girl's death is an accident or a suicide and he recognizes the young woman from an earlier chance encounter. His boss wants him to conclude it was a suicide so that the insurance company doesn't have to pay. The young woman's ghost visits Koo to tell him that her death was accidental and they fall in love. When Koo's girlfriend and his parents find out he's in love with a spirit, they hire an exorcist to get rid of her. Written by Kevin Risch <krisch@intranet.on.ca>

A great movie with fond memories for me
21 April 2006 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

As a teenager, I saw this movie with my girlfriend back in the early 90's at one of those laser-disk places, it was already out a few years by then and was a random choice. Stumbling across this page certainly brings back memories, I recall we both loved the film.In fact my girl was moved to tears after watching it.We broke up not long after that, I moved away to further my studies and lost contact with her. I don't know what became of her. I would love to see the movie again, I'm not sure if it would have the same effect on me. But this film will always have a special place in my heart as a reminder of the happiness of my teenage years and hopefully for my ex-sweetheart somewhere out there too.
