Unforgettable Drama of Romance
26 August 2008 | by (Jakarta) – See all my reviews

'A Moment of Romance' is undoubtedly one of those old HK cinematic gems, but to appreciate and applaud the movie utmost, one should really understand and familiar with the origin of the movie itself. By the time around late 80's to mid 90's, plenty of HK movie appeared in theme dominated not far from Triad Flick, a sad ending love story, hard boiled gun fight action or some silly comedy (mostly by Stephen Chow and gang). AMOR in this case still follows the mainstream, combining the tragic love story in the midst of underground Triad affair. The main lead Andy Lau was by that time enjoyed the peak of his popularity that he could star in not less than 10 movies a year while the main lead Jacklyn Wu rolled in her very first debut which trigger off her stardom. Andy played Wah Dee, a young and rebellious triad member with some remorse within, while Jacklyn played Jojo, an innocent young girl who happened to be the only daughter of a rich family.

The plot actually flows very lightly and in some way over dramatically, yet it leaves mesmerizing impressions. A coincidence encounter between Wah Dee and Jojo in a robbery went wrong lead to an endearing feeling between them. And when a love story happens between a triad member and the only daughter of a rich family, you must at least have got the idea it isn't going to be a silk smooth love story, not to mention the conflict occurred between Wah Dee and fellow brutish gang leader Trumpet(Tommy Wong) in account of Jojo. The friendship between Wah Dee and Rambo(Richard Ng), an all time loser which normally nobody would even took a glance at, added some depth to the story and put an implicit character depiction of Wah Dee himself.

The thing that differs AMOR from movie alike is the chemistry that being well built between characters among the beautiful score and unforgettable soundtrack(mostly by the remarkable Beyond), which all seems perfectly balance and fit to each scene. Andy couldn't look better and very perfectly matches the character. A prince charming figure on a 500cc racing motor-bike, his heart-robbing eye glance, his charismatic and intriguing good-looking, in my opinion is those of very rare to be leveled even after decades. Jacklyn herself who portrays an innocent young girl in love is truly convincing both by her looks and demeanor. In short way : Perfect casts! And despite the seeming a little aged action scenes and some lines, it still delivers a powerful gesture all the way.

In conclusion, for those who are already familiar with classic 90's Hong Kong cinema, AMOR should be an unforgettable cinematic experience. And for those who are still unfamiliar, AMOR would be a fine introductory.

-Very Highly Recommended-
