Whimsical and never too heavy
13 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

"Lost and Found" exemplifies the best of Hong Kong cinema that can be done with a fraction of the cost of Hollywood productions. The director Lee Chi-Ngai writes and directs the movie, which is an affecting drama with whimsical and humorous elements in it; parts of it may seem inconsequential, but never insubstantial, and there's no preaching or any heaviness to it. The best which can be said about this film is that it resembles something very light on the stomach that is eaten in morsel but is still highly satisfying, not the kind of (heavy) sirloin steak habitually churned out in the West. Takeshi Kaneshiro is quite endearing, and Kelly Chan doesn't do the film any damage as the female lead. The soundtrack fits the story well and although some people might find the running time too long for a story which isn't exactly dramatic, somehow the director pulls it all off for you to follow through everything.
