Like Most Things, Its About Compromise
5 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The late Leslie Cheung plays Sing, a director whose last two films were unsuccessful. In order to shoot his new film, changes would have to be made to the script, namely there would now be erotic elements to it. At first resisting, he realizes it has to be done. The lead actress is Mango, played by the very sexy Shu Qi and, herself not liking what she has to do, eventually comes on board. There are some really fun scenes in this film, and it also has the added bonus of a young Karen Mok playing Sing's increasingly neglected girlfriend. A meditation on the HK film industry, but it could have been from anywhere. You just know these kind of quid pro quos happen all the time in business, why not the film industry? The acting is good throughout. I think it should be required watching for budding film directors and anyone else who wants to be part of the film industry. I think you'll like it.
