An engaging and frequently beautiful melodrama
4 June 2008 | by (Isle of Man, British Isles) – See all my reviews

When Yee (Charlene Choi) is diagnosed with terminal cancer, she morbidly hires funeral director Duan (Eason Chan) to prepare for her own funeral. Luckily for her, he's not prepared to let her fade away without a fight, and sets about trying to convince her that life is worth living.

This languid little melodrama is a melancholy and quite mesmerising affair. Beautifully shot and with a lovely, if sometimes overwhelming musical score, you'll hopefully forgive the more cloyingly sentimental elements of a plot that could quite easily have become depressingly maudlin.

Choi is endearingly cute enough to instantly get your sympathy, but what's more of a surprise is her convincing and well-measured acting. Chan also delivers a likable performance.

Well worth a watch.
