She is very ill, and she needs a reason to fight against her illness. Her father gives her no reason and her boy friend says, "Honey I love you BUT....". "But" of course is no reason. Like "As Good As It Gets" in which Helen Hunt is the reason for Jack Nicholson to make better himself, she also finds the "Helen Hunt" of her own finally. "Be loved" makes her life become enjoyable. This movie has a happy ending although this ending is happy in a way not so usual. The style this movie employs is also quite different from that of other hongkong movies. Everything looks slow and gray. This year the movie industry in hongkong has come near to collapse, and the recover last year is just an one-off. But this one-off really has given us movies quite impressive, and no doubt this movie is the one among them. An optimistic view is still no mirage.
