Cheung Chun Fai (Eason Chan) is a successful interior designer, whose only priority in life is earning money. Friends and family are of little importance. When he was a child, Fai dreamed of being a firefighter, and even prayed to God that his dream would come true. This earnest wish so touched his friend Kiu (Gil) that it inspired her to become a firefighter. She still has not gotten over her childhood love for Fai. During a car accident, Fai and Kiu meet again. After the accident, Fai ends up getting fired from his company, and also discovers that the accident has left him with a strange supernatural power- whenever he touches someone, he is able to feel what they are feeling....happiness, despair, pain, etc. Fron now on, every time Fai intends to hurt someone, he can feel the pain and sadness of his victims at the same time. Because of these experiences, Fai starts to change back into a kind man, and Fai and Gil fell in love at last. They disagree on one thing however, which is ... Written by Anonymous

Caring and Innovative Story
6 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

How irritating: sitting through an entire flick expecting it to be loathsome and ending up enjoying the thing. That much can be said of Adrian Kwan's big screen revision of several older concepts featuring a mean, selfish character driven to antipathy by greed and over-active elbows only to experience some life changing traumatic event transforming the unwitting scrooge into reluctant societal angel.

Kind of similar to Liar, Liar and a few long forgotten Twilight Zone episodes, this movie centers on gradually successful singer/songwriter cum actor Eason Chan, now pulling in top billing roles at long last. Chan's comedic renditions of any part given him have been previously seen in run-of-the-mill bits such as Cop Shop Babes, but now he's apparently matured enough to introduce substantial flair into proceedings, one large factor helping If U Care challenge all reason by being more than a ludicrous heap of nonsense, as its face-value may seem to dictate.

Well-off yuppie executive Gino's track record of embezzling colleagues' ideas and trampling over all and sundry on his endless pursuit of material comforts brought about resentment and isolation from others. Being a total jackass, he couldn't care less. Following a car accident his broken arm develops paranormal abilities to convey people's emotional core to its owner, forcing Gino to intimately identify with his victims' misery and distress. Slowly but surely this leads to his eventual enlightenment, helped along by visits to childhood home Rainbow Village (where fond memories lurk) as well as socializing with lifelong love and idol Kiu (played by tolerable Twins member Gillian Chung), who grew into one of HK's most valiant firefighters, effectively living out Chan's amiable alter ego.

Surprisingly rich in symbolism and deeper philosophical components, If U Can may not storm Mann's Chinese Theater come next spring but it will catch you off guard. As a capper we get Eason Chan in one of his best appearances to date. While his doofus act gets tiresome as the movie starts, it does evolve beyond infantilism to something quite oddly meaningful and satisfying. Bonuses include showings by always potent Candy Lo (No Problem 2) and funnily crazed Rain Li. Go in looking for your inner buffoon, come out having discovered your inner child.
