Damn good
9 January 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

One house. Three different characters all in the search for love. Each character gets a third of the movie with the timeline running. The movie begins in a good way but soon ends up in an upgoing spiral. It just got better and better. Especially in the last part of the movie all things in the movie start to really click and the movie ends on a high. Something rare in these days when movies tend to end awfully...

Maggie Cheung has never looked better then in this movie and Eric Kot is just hilarious as her business partner.

Definetly worth your time!
