Quotes

Vincent: What should I say? Remember what Woody Allen said? A relationship is like a shark. It has to move constantly or it dies.
Samuel Pang: Did Allen Tam the singer say that? He only said: "What a trap, and why me, why me". Bullshit!

Brilliant and touching
17 December 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most unforgettable movies I have ever seen. The plot was superb and the acting was brilliant. The story was simple but real and touching. You can so easily relate to the characters yourself making it a magical experience to watch it.

Perhaps I am a little biased but I am sure even non-Chinese can understand the feelings portrayed behind the movie. In my opinion, this is still the best film that Chow Yun Fat has ever casted in.
