unique and beautiful in its own way
21 February 2003 | by (Sydney, Oz) – See all my reviews

I always feel attracted to this film the first time it came out, there's something about the poster design that make me feel this is a "different" movie. But i didnt catch the film untill now. I'm not sure whether this will turn out to be just another crappy HK film or my feeling from the poster is true, the first 15min or so kinda draw me to believe the first. Another cheesy plot perform by the so-so actor direct by another wong kar wai wannabe, then it turn to a pretty solid performence and direction but just another cheesy romantic story, then slowly its just turn into this beautiful picture. Fan wong is definately putting an eye-catching performance and derek yee is in every way succesfull in sending out the message he intended. Now if you would excuse me, I'm going to buy the poster.
