I thought Metade Fumaca (Portuguese - meaning "Half Smoked") was a great drama from HK. Eric Tsang and Nicholas Tse gave the performances of their careers as former Triad member Mountain Leopard and rascal Smokey. The story was an odd one but it had some symbolism. Mountain Leopard carries a half-smoked cigarette as a memento from a long lost love. Even Stephen Fung gave out a great performance as the young Mountain Leopard (in flashback mode). This movie is worth seeing: great story, great camerawork, and great performances.
