Sam, a fresh graduate from Singapore, works as a journalist in Hong Kong to gain wider exposure in life. He chances upon Jane, a streetwise Hong Kong girl who captures his interest for a cover story. What started out as fascination develops into a heart-warming love story. Together, the two young lovers discover hope, happiness and the truth about love. Written by
Raintree press release
I don't know much about Hong Kong movies, or just enough to know there's a lot of junk, but after two viewings I still feel that by any standards this is a truly good movie. The main attraction here is the center character of Jane, who embodies with great liveliness a fundamentally good girl strayed into a depraved life. The movie oscillates between light comedy and (especially towards the end)
powerful drama triggered by the girl's unshakable (or hardly so) addictions and bad habits; but ultimately it is a very refreshing, uplifting and tender love story.
