Storyline

Laid-back hairdresser Louie (Jordan Chan) and his kind-hearted transgender mother (Lau Kar Ying) take in the bereaved, deeply depressed but beautiful Aggie (Yasuko Tomita) to give her new hope and a new family. With their unconditional support, she learns to blossom as a person and follow her dreams out into the wide world. Romance simmers - yet fails to break the surface - between the young pair, but a terrible tragedy leaves Louie in desperate need and Aggie facing a tough dilemma: should she continue living her dream as a chef in a prestigious restaurant, or return to care for the person she cares for most in his time of need? Written by Will Milton

wow. waaaaaaaaay excellent. beautiful, understated, and extremely rewarding, esp if you haven't read the book.

unlike most films out of HK, constantly keeps one on one's toes. Never can tell which way the film is going to twist, as warps each and every cliche as they rear their heads.

well recommended and then some.
