This film leaves a lasting impression
28 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie introduced me to the HK movie industry 15 years ago and it proves that it is in no way inferior to that of Hollywood. There is fantastic acting and the story is truly original, especially for its time. The characters feel real and the passion pours through the screen. I have since been a loyal Andy Lau movie fan, rarely disappointed by his 100 + movies.

The story involves romance, loyalty, friendship, and trust. I actually saw this movie when I was 10 years old and I knew nothing about love, but yet I felt the great emotion in the film. I highly recommend this film. It is 15 years old, but is a great romantic drama, as I still vividly remember it till this day.
