This is an immigrant movie about three ladies, one from Hong Kong, one from mainland China and one from Taiwan, who all settle in New York. Stchingawa marries a Chinese man, but misses home. Sylvia Chang (Taiwan) goes through relationships that are not very fulfilling and Maggie Cheung plays a successful businesswoman. Its basically a story of immigrant life in the big city, always fertile ground for a film. However, the characters, to me, seem underwritten. Maybe that the film was lensed a while ago and I'm seeing it now is the reason, but it just didn't ring true. I like thyat the three ladies became friends, but feel more should have been explored on that. Their individual lives are not as interesting. I cant fault the acting, especially with the always flawless Maggie Cheung in her role, but I felt the film had potential it never realized. It should be remade now, with the same people, and it would probably make a more interesting film. So, better than okay on the strength of the performances, but not as good as it could have been.
