In the old days in China, a male servant working in a brothel traditionally wore a green scarf. It was sign of humiliation. In modern times, a man who is cuckolded by his wife or lover is said to "wear a green hat". The film tells the story of two men -one a bank robber and the other a police captain- who share the humiliation of "wearing a green hat". Their cases differ, but their anguish is the same. In the end, each makes what he believes is the right choice for himself. Written by lament

Surprisingly good
9 February 2005 | by (Amsterdam,The Netherlands) – See all my reviews


The plot outline is straight forward. It may put you off. It shouldn't. No one tells you that it contain only half of the story because the film begins with a completely different story and only in the end of that story come the policeman in question to the scene and from than onwards it his story.

The second half of the film concentrate on the policeman and his cheating wife and focus on the old and famous questions: What is love? Why we love someone? Has sex anything to do with love? And while the subject are familiar the film doesn't land into clichés and manage, thanks to and restrained and charged performance of the main character, to be engaging and touching. The ending is so vague it will leave you thinking a little bit.

Go and see it. You are sure to enjoy it.
