Storyline

This film gets under the skin of a very marginalized group: recent immigrants to Hong Kong from Mainland China. Belying the expectation that they will belong in a territory now returned to China's sovereignty, they find themselves lonely, frustrated, poor and employable only in the most menial jobs from elevator service staff to prostitution. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

You can actually watch it in fast forward !
9 August 2002 | by (Antibes, France) – See all my reviews

"Slow" does not necessarily mean "boring", but in this case it does. You can see amongst other things a kettle boil for 30 seconds and countless scenes of people just sitting there without a word.

The story of a hardcore porn video retailer cheating on his wife with a prostitute... Doesn't sound appealing, does it ?... Well, there's barely more than that going on anyway...

Most of the time, the cinematography and the choice of colors are rather nice but is that enough to make this movie interesting ? I doubt it.
