If I told you I had a tattoo somewhere private, would you want to see where it is?
10 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jade (Rainie Yang) has a porn web-blog and is remembering her first love after she runs into her at a tattoo parlor. Takeko (Isabella Leong

  • The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, The Eye 3) has a tattoo that


Jade wants. More importantly, Jade wants Takeko to remember her. Takeko wants to forget because of trauma that occurred when the two of them were together many years previous.

It is not a girl-on-girl story, it is just a love story with two women, about obsession and trauma, with tattoos as the tie. One doesn't have to get into philosophy to understand love and pain. Just sit back and enjoy.

It was an incredibly beautifully shot film with a great score and two great actors that made it worthwhile.
