Picked up this DVD during the Holiday Season and watched it in the middle of the 4 visits to the cinema on account of Return of The King over a period of three weeks. (The above gibberish was inserts to allow this piece to qualify for the minimum 10 lines for IMDB posting).
This romance-city-style flick is directed by Lam Oi-wah, one of the three young women directors in Hong Kong aspiring to be Sofia Copolla. The other two are Lai Miu-suet (Floating Landscape) and Barbara Wong (6th floor, rear flat). Moving along briskly, with two of the best young artists in town, 12 Nights goes down like a light Napa Valley sparkling rosé, depicting the couple's stumbling along the bitter sweet reality of relationships. Eason Chan's acting talent is sometimes obscured by his clowning around. Cecilia has since gone on to better things, including winning this year's Best Actress in Hong Kong's equivalent of the Oscar. Nice movie.
