The English title is Dragon Eye Congee: A Dream of Love
19 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The title of this film does carry the warning of "A Dream of Love" and so some disjointed, random, surreal and bizarre elements are to be expected. But this is not so much a movie as a montage set to music. And however beautifully composed the images or the music neither can compensate for all that is wrong with the film.

It is not just that this love story is a hopeless one, where destiny conspires against true love, but it is all the other hopeless bits - the wooden acting (other than iridescent Fann Wong), dull dialogue, ditzy dream sequences and the pocked plot. All as creaky as the plastic gold couch in Shaun's hotel room.

Shaun is a digital arts expert who travels to Taiwan to help his friend, Ivy, produce a video for the city's museum. Since he was a child, Shaun has been haunted by the recurring dream of a girl offering him a bowl of Dragon Eye Congee. In Taiwan he finds himself in his dream girl's house and learns the significance of that tune he can't get out of his head.

This dream of love is really a long musack video. The best we can say is that the congee does look good.

DVD extras: There aren't any.
