A Complete Mess
24 December 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In China, Lau Sing (Stephen Fung) leaves his wife and their young daughter in his province and travels to the big city with his friends to raise money in pharmacology business. Four years later, he becomes well-succeeded and raises a small fortune, but a scum gambler burns the building. killing his friends and accusing him of the criminal act. Lau Sing is arrested and the young lawyer Siu Chin (Gillian Chung) defends him in court, but she does not succeed and her client is sentenced to decapitation. However, Lau Sing escapes on the day of his execution and travels with Siu Chin to his province, where along forty-nine days he unravels dark secrets.

"49 Days" is a complete mess, with an absolutely confused screenplay and is based on the belief of many Chinese people of reincarnation and karma. Further, there are serious inconsistencies and mistakes in the subtitles in Portuguese that makes the story tougher to be understood, The intention of the writer and the director is also never clear, blending drama, romance, mystery, comedy and horror and making in the end a salad of genres. My vote is four.
