Romantic drama starring Eric Tsang, Frankie Chan and Cheung Man has an unusual ending, the romantic couplings not ending up as you would imagine. The film is a cut above the usual romantic comedies in that it deals with unrequited love and that not everything will have to resolve itself in the end. Unusally for a Hong Kong movie it also contained quite a number of songs, six or seven which made large tracts of the film seem as if it were an endless montage as each character waited for their destiny to be met. Frankie Chan played his usual cool (or cold) persona and Eric Tsang was gratefully restrained as a number of his performances in Eighties films are irritating and over the top. Like most Hong Kong films the people are aspiring to a better life and is the thing that stands out most to me as I watch more and more HK films.
