If you loved HK, you'll love this film.
5 September 2004 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

It's nostalgia! With all the "streetscape" of the "good old Hong Kong". If you loved HK, you'll love this film. Besides, the film is poetic and much more like an art film than any traditional animated movies, such as Disney's. And I'm very glad that we finally have an animated movie that is unique.

The story is about "reality bites". And the family of McDull showed 3 kinds of attitude towards life, i.e. searching for the past (identity/dream/ideals), future (to be practical/ materialism), and to be stayed in the present. Technically, that's more room to improve, and the story-telling is fragmented. However, it was cleverly use the voice over to link the several parts of the story.
