Coming of age film
22 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie star many young faces that i don't know, except for the head of the family play by Eric Tsang. He open a noodle store, in a bad location with everything falling apart. Soon they renovated and now they have to make the noodle taste better. After that the movie contain a love story, between Lawrence Chou, the son of ERic tsang, and a girl who used to work in that place before they open. They seem to be in love and happy at the beginning but soon Lawrence Chou start to fall for her sister a little bit. Another sideline plot revolve around ERic Tsang smaller daughter, who like to hang around with a poor kid who was the first real customer to the shop. That little kid think because he is poor that she doesn't want to be with him.

The movie is not bad, and provide some neat plot development. The movie outline doesn't provide any big conflict/twist, though this wasn't really a setback. The acting was done marvelous, Eric Tsang play a optimistic guy who even though he know the business not going to be successful he still have a fun time doing it. Lawrence Chou Chun-Wai, his first major role, was nominated for best new actors. What should be noted is Kelly Chen cameo, she is hilarious has the girl who really like Lawrence Chou, she is known has ugly ducking. She sang a couple of song in the movie which was beautiful.

The main romance, is kind of similar from those formulaic script (that can be seen in those Joe Ma directed film), but the level of seriousness is more realistic than those movie.
