Sweet Romantic Story
2 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chow Yun-Fat as "Figurehead(Figgy)" goes to the airport in his awful car with the broken door and his loud buddies, to meet his distant cousin Jennifer from Hong Kong. She is a shy, refined young woman who is nonplused by this group and the rundown neighborhood and her awful apartment they take her to, which Figgy thinks is first class. Doesn't it have a gas refrigerator? Isn't there a phone in the hall? Just ignore the trains that rumble outside the window every so often. So begins a sweet love story of two opposites who learn to see the other person in new ways.

Figurehead at first says all women are "choable"(trouble) mainly Jennifer. Jennifer thinks Figgy is a gambler who gets into fights and will never change. Their growing understanding and appreciation for each other makes a first rate romantic tale.

Cherie Cheung and Chow are both very believeable and Make you care about these characters. Watch it and see for yourself.
