Unexpectedly good !!
25 February 2010 | by (Asia) – See all my reviews

From the Chinese title, i thought this is one of those silly movies and since ratings here is so low, I wanted to give it a miss. But having not seen Maggie Cheung on screen for so many years, I think I must go for it. From the poster, I thought it's about 3 relationships but it turns out to be 5, real value for money !!

Overall the actings are good, stories good but with some forgivable flaws. The most touching part turns out to be from some unknown actors. Unfortunately, it don't have any good music or song.

I don't understand why quite a few number of voters give it only 1. I give 7/10.
