The only movie I HAD to see at Sundance 2006
26 June 2006 | by (Park City, UT, USA) – See all my reviews

This was really the only movie at Sundance 2006 that I absolutely HAD to see. Many (American) audience members simply did not understand the humor in the more dramatic parts (very characteristic of Korean-style dramas) which simply is not seen much in American movies. Note: this movie is not Korean, but I draw from Korean movies as a reference.

T, an experienced hit-man (Francis Ng) is forced to work with a group of young bumbling gangsters. T is more or less a "strong silent" honorable man (the irony being that he kills for a living) who is contracted to kill via names written in lai si packets (little red packets - commonly associated with gifts given during Chinese New Year). You, as a viewer, piece together the past and the present regarding T, the woman he has a crush on (Vivian Hsu), the idiotic gangsters T works with, an old detective T plays chess with (who is working on the some cases involving dead gangsters), and the rest of the gangster underground. Ultimately, T must protect the woman he loves, retain his honor as a man and fulfill his responsibilities as a professional hit-man.

I am not big into HK/Singaporean movies, but my experience watching Korean dramas/comedies prepared me to understand much of the humor when it seemed to glaze over much of the rest of the American audience. I personally thought some moments were hysterical. The movie is more or less a crime-drama (I guess) but from my experience, Asian dramas don't like to restrain themselves to only one genre. I personally think that Max Makowski (writer/director) managed to minimize explanation of some parts, which gave the film a more adult/mature/lifelike quality (i.e. what was in the suitcase?).

I don't think I could recommend a similar movie (few have managed to put together a quality script with rich characters), but the garbled time-line is similar to Memento (or Pulp Fiction for you main-streamers) and the main character is vaguely like Old Boy. I can't wait for One Last Dance to make it to DVD because it is already starting to fade from my memory and I do believe that this is one of my top 10 movies.
