Not the great but touching and subtle
22 January 2008 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

It looked like another typical lesbian movie when I saw the commercial of this movie but actually this movie is so interesting,touching and desirable after watching this movie.

It depicts a relationship of two girls Jade and Takeko.Jade is a web-cam girl who always thinks her world is beautiful although her world means her colorfully decorated bedroom for service.Her thought is actually to cover her painful past.The other is Takeko.She is a tattoo artist who always thinks her painful past (leaving her brother alone and the death of her dad ) is her fault.She has Spider lilies tattooed on her arm.One day,Jade asks Takeko for Spider lilies because Jade can remember that her first love was a girl who had Spider Liliies tattooed.

The main issue of this movie is about remembrance which drives two girls love each other.so their relationship is tender and touching meanwhile this movie can portray how the internet world that many teenagers usually rely on and the real world which they attempt to escape conflict.So this story is powerful and this movie would have been the best if there were not some unnecessary scenes to interrupt the emotion Such as Ah-Dong scenes.

Nevertheless,the performances of two leading actresses are outstanding and effective.Raine Yang as Jade can develop herself from a teen pop star to be a promising starlet.Her character looks simple.Actually,she is still finding real love in the real world.While Isabella Leong as Takeko is the greatest highlight.Sincerely,I have loved this woman instantly when she appears.She looks mysterious and introvert but she is artistic and sensitive.Before being Takeko,a cool girl(or guy) ,Isabella has been several different characters from sweet girl(bug me not) to a psycho(Diary).When she becomes Takeko,she is desirable and subtle.She can portray deep emotion by her manner although speaking mandarin is an obstacle because she usually speaks Cantonese in a lot of HK movies. This movie is able to prove how talented she is but I am surprised why these two didn't get nominated any awards.
