Hongkong director Derek Yee has managed to create a heartwarming, sincere and honest love story in a two-hour movie that is a Hongkong-Singapore collaboration. He casted Fann Wong from Singapore and Peter Ho from Taiwan amongst veteran Hongkong actors. Fann acts as a street urchin who is depressed with life and escapes from life in order to feel better. Peter is a journalist with a Hongkong tabloid who trails her in nightspots in order to get a good story from her. Events between them make them realise how a relationship has to be sincere to work. Fann Wong put in such a natural performance in her first Cantonese speaking role (she usually speaks Mandarin in her Singapore TV performances). She is also good as the wild child. The movie is a dramedy, comedic at times, but reflective at other times, of Hongkong society as a whole. It is a must watch for any fan of heartwarming and sincere love stories.
