This movie,"Oi yue shing",is an unknown one,even for many fans of HK movies.But I think it's a great film,if not a masterpiece.
2,000 year is a low tide of HK movie.This movie,whose cast contains Francis Ng,Dave Wong,Daniel Chan,GiGi Leung(these are all famous stars but not super stars),tells an unusual story.It refers different kinds of emotions--Francis and GiGi, a love of no-obvious Francis and Daniel,brother's friendship with conflict Francis and Dave,a pure and loyal fellowship.
The beginning of the movie has fully shown that it won't be a common commercial film.It's a pity that the movie got a box office a little more than 2 million HKs,which caused the loss.This is an important reason why it is unknowns for majority.
Another reason is the director was not famous before his work"infernal affairs"came out.
Bless you,Hongkong movie!
