stylish work of edward yang
14 July 2001 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

It was the first edward yang's movie i've seen and from then on, I'd not miss a single one. It's very witty, but has a mild sad feeling at the same time. A bunch of young crooks in taipei: red fish, hong kong, toothpaste and renren, share a flat but they have very different character. They think they are smart but slowly, they realise things don't always go their ways. The dialogue is exceptionally funny, toothpaste's absurd never-kiss-women-theory would make u smile and shake your head. The whole cast gave a strong performance. No one should miss this film.
