The wonderful portrait of the young people
26 November 2008 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Is that true if Lawrence said it was hopeless in the shaggy estate like in the film. It can be true if we turn an blind eye to it. Ling Kit hated to hear the evil around him. He wanted to live in peace, especially when he see the evil at home. What a father he followed. A gambler would never blamed things on himself because it was his younger son that talked to him at the wrong time when he thought he would win a billion. The question is he could be a good father, right? I didn't think he would. He set up a bad example to his sons. Ling knew he was became a victims if he said his father was wrong. In Chinese society, they have to agree with their parents.

Moreover, his mother still keep the mouth shut. How can he start to complain about that? the younger one complained that it was late to say sorry but he did not know that earlier.

The misunderstanding and great expectations from us to others ruins everything one day. The destruction builds up because we live only by our beliefs, not the actually loving half of us all.

Youth is a bit of fool but sometimes I don't pity Hoi Kit because he was much deeply into "not wanna let you care" thing. He blamed Ling Kit on not stopping the abuse. He didn't know that it was putting his brother in dilemma soon.

All we have something not desired to let others know. It soon would become our problem because we believe we would hurt if we mentioned to others. It is foolish to think like that.

Lawrence made you think of things that you don't even wanted to think, especially in the time of entertainment. It is not a farce but a undeniable fact that you and I could witness every day. If the writers takes the wrong way, it would become a typical melodrama but now it goes so well and remarkable, the most important thing is the great cast, they make it a lively performance, without making it into just another film that pleased all.

I will recommend to those that in favor learning of human mind to see this masterpiece. It will be worthwhile if you dare to care more about the people around you, even though they seem to be cold actually. All they need is love, that is all.
