Storyline

Two San Francisco detectives discover a corpse in an abandoned car. From the dead man's wallet and a tape recorder, they determine the man was a money launderer. The story is then told in flashback, narrated by the dead man. Seems he was being pursued after robbing a partner who had been robbing him. Hiding out in a warehouse, he tries to re-establish contact with his children. In the warehouse, he then is contacted by a woman who frequents it because her husband died there and becomes obsessed with its new inhabitant as the reincarnate of her husband. Of course, following all of these goings-on, he ultimately must face down his pursuers. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Impressive Film
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film on IFC and I was so impressed, I couldn't stop watching it. And I stumbled across it by pure accident. Julia Nickson is stunning as ever and has come along way as an accomplished actress since her interesting turn in "Rambo II". I was not familiar with the other actors but they all did an excellent job in their individual portrayals. Especially the son and daughter. All the characters were pretty well developed.

It was also great to see a contemporary Asian film that was not dubbed. Very well worth seeing. Wonderful and compelling storyline with great dialog you have to pay attention to.
