Artistic but boring
19 September 2003 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The greatest problem with this movie is the total lack of any action and meaningful interaction between the persons in the movie. There are a lot of long single position shots, often just showing daily activities, like someone unpacking his shoppings, or sitting in the train. And although the movie is very artistic in expressing this mood of young adults in between conflicting cultures, it goes too far and makes the characters rather unbelievable.

Jacky, the main character of the movie, seems not to be able to make any decision, and having a lowly paid job, is dreaming of having his own shop. Yet, we never see him take any initiative in his real life. During the movie he moves to his own apartment, and when is mother arrived, she comments on the nice cough he has bought. To me it seems a little odd that he could have furnitured the apartment all on his own.

Now, I can believe that he is not ready for a marriage, but I think it is rather odd that there is no interaction at all between him and ChiChi, the girl that came over from China (not an easy thing to do in reality) to marry him, and who is now staying with him in the apartment.
