This isn't quite the feelgood movie of 2007, but some pretty strong performances from Bingbing Fan and Anthony Wong make this intimate mystery worth catching. I was somewhat unsatisfied by the ending, and the mystery is clunky in places, but the tone and vibrancy of the film cannot be denied.
Watch it with someone you care about... as long as they don't mind a little bit of blood.
