Anthony Wong Chau-Sang,
A crying shame that Sandra Ng was not even nominated for this role which was probably one of her career best. The movie was jagged and unrefined at times, but Francis & Sandra Ng made it work.
Being a divorcee with her breast removed, Sandra Ng was able to portray the placidity with a reservoir of emotions beneath the hardened face.
In come Francis Ng, a hoodlum with his own past, equally alone in the world. A bunch of two dimensional characters propagated the movie along....the cutesy baby, the cutesy (mobster's) son, the cutesy grandfather, the cutesy driving instructor. But the two Ngs have good chemistry and Sandra Ng slowly transformed not by the prospect of love, but merely the ray of hope for being able to feel and love again.
There were enough detail for us to notice the sincerity the director put in. The greatness come in fragments and at some instances within the movie, the ordinariness of things were elevated into something magical. The lyrics (not the singing) of the theme song complemented the movie quite well.
