The saga of Kum continues, played by the excellent actress Sandra Ng. This time, the background of the film leaps to the year 2046 in which Kum, now over 80 but except for white hair looking not a day older than the first film, tells a young man who is having relationship problems about her life. This time, the movie focuses on less in terms of the flashbacks. The SARS epidemic is prominently part of this film, with the other major part being her relationship with a cousin. Its extraordinary that Sandra playing a teenager actually looks like one. This film is less played for laughs than the first, but it has some comedic overtones. Sandra's incredible acting virtuosity shows she can handle happiness, seriousness and even great sadness. If this film is not as immediate as the first in terms of entertainment, it is its equal in heart. Lee Sin-Je, Jacky Cheung and Andy Lau are all in the film, but this Sandra's film and she admirably portrays her character. Watch both films within a short time of each other. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
