Storyline

Alan and Eric are childhood friends who are separated when Eric moves to America. They are reunited in Hong Kong when Eric finds Alan at the cafe where the latter is working as a waiter and singer. Together they forge a business which is destroyed in a storm. Meanwhile, both have met a lady named Olive, and both strive for her affection. In the end, Alan's rising singing career and Olive's tendency to favour Alan over Eric alienates all three of them. They are only reunited once again in San Francisco, where Alan discovers Eric is on his death-bed from illness, and they realise what real friendship is all about, and how Olive would only be happy if she and Alan got married.

A Prelude Of Peter Chan's Films
15 July 2000 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Peter Chan's movies often can play upon the heart-string of the audience without making something too measured. This movie is a prelude of his career and in fact has completely revealed the unique style of him.

The story is simple. Eric was the best friend of Alan and they all fancied a girl but Eric did not let them know. The girl thus became the girl friend of Alan. One night, Alan found out and Eric felt guilty therefore left them. Several years later, Alan found Eric in a hospital and the latter passed away near the ending of the movie.

A predictable script but still very moving. The content inside this simple story contains so many things - friendship, responsibility, loyalty, selfishness and love. Very complicated and thus the characters can be described in depth especially Eric. Peter Chan has also made the description in a manner quite natural although not as mature as that of "Comrade, Almost A Love Story".

Equally remarkable is the actors especially Eric Tsang. Maggie Cheung also gave good performance. It is a movie undoubtedly worth watching.
