a great performance by maggie cheung&well-directed
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason not to give this a 10 is that is only available on a substandard DVD,but the acting by Maggie Cheung is at the top of her game,which means the best.I think she is the most versatile and complete actress working today.Considering that Clara Law has worked in Hong Kong and Australia for the most part I am amazed that she got the locations she did in New York instead of the "usual"places.The scene out along the "N" Line in Brooklyn was really off the beaten path-I grew up in Brooklyn and you almost never see that part of the city even with an American director.The story and supporting cast were also very strong and the treatment of the illegal immigrant experience was well done.As a former INS agent I can attest to that.One scene at the beginning where Maggie Cheung tells a story with only her expression and no dialog is great.Now if there could only be a good cleaned up copy it would be a solid 10.I've seen Maggie Cheung in mediocre and even bad films,but I never saw her give a bad performance.
