No Propaganda, Certainly NO Tearjerker Or Soap; Just A Brilliant Film...
3 February 2005 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Any film with Maggie Cheung, the superb actress who has a depth and scope comparable with the incomparable Anna Magnani & Romy Schneider, is very well worth watching.

This film, although viewed on a terrible Full Screen DVD edition with an awful haze over the picture, is worth every minute of your time !!

The film kicks of with a feverish scene in China, and ends in Heaven, which has all the elements of the deepest pits of Hell... All this we can see all too clearly on the face of Li Hung. Portrayed of course by Miss Cheung.

Not that Tony Leung isn't worth mentioning here; far from it ! Starting out as a naive Orpheus searching high and low for his Euridice, he is afflicted by the filth of down town Big Apple. He portrays the searching husband beautifully.

Also the horrible teen with a heart, Hayley Man, delivers a fine performance. And even the baby boy has some glorious acting moments caught on film !

A thrilling and sometimes very chilling drama; watching this film is a magnetizing experience ! Thank you Clara Law; that you'd wish and find ways to give us many more of your wonderful films !!
