Tasty dessert, delicious film
26 March 2003 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This film I felt was simply outstanding and emotional. Tiramisu tells of the fleeting love story between Fung (Nicholas Tse) and Jane (Karena Lam). Fung is a young postman by day and janitor by night, who also happened to be deaf since the death of his father years before. Jane is a dancer and part of a promising contemporary dance group who have reached the final of a major dance competition. Both happen to meet coincidentally in various places within a day in Hong Kong, but don't exchange a word. However, a tragic road accident takes away Jane's life and she seeks Fung to fulfill a few final requests on her behalf before she enters the underworld.

One can't help but make the comparison that Tiramisu is a cross between Ghost and Save The Last Dance, although in truth it does stand out as being very different between the two. The film starts off quite neatly, with as little dialogue as possible, but every fine detail carefully placed into the viewer's mind. As the film progresses, it gets very emotional and is clearly just beautifully and intelligently crafted, with different settings that engage the thoughts of the viewer. The dialogue is sweet and there are good moments of drama, and coupled with a wonderful score and choreography for a few of the dance scenes, I was very impressed by how well the film was put together.

Just watching this film, it is easy to see how difficult the roles are to act, as it requires a lot of purposeful training. And I feel the decision to cast two young actors in the lead role was an excellent choice as Nicholas and Karena play the leads excellently and the spontaneity. Given Nicholas' recent problems and bad press, let's hope he can bounce back with a few more films like this
