Storyline

Tim (Kwok) is a defence attorney with a heart of gold. Refusing to be simply a hired gun for his clients, he quits his high-powered job to become a prosecutor for the Justice Department. With the support of fiancee Megan and cop buddy Nam (Liu Kai Chi), Tim decides to start afresh. When he meets a handicapped piano teacher, Jing (Gwei), who urges him to help her. She is accusing her doctor, Zhou (Chang) a renowned surgeon of sexual harassment during a routine check-up. But with no witnesses and only their own conflicting testimonies, a Rashomon-like mystery unfolds. To make matters worse, Zhou's defence attorney, Freddy, is Tim's successor at his old law firm, and proves to be Tim's toughest opponent to-date. As a media frenzy encircles the case, it slowly destroys the lives of everyone involved. Written by Youtube

"Christmas Rose" - The Romanticism and Idealists of law. Just like the rose(or U can say love..)from Valentine's Day:already withered,before it Bloomes..
26 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Realistically speaking, the production quality of the film itself does not reach the score rating by me,should be 7 or even less;

but considering the subject matter involved in this type of Hong Kong movies, and even fewer of world cinema, also it's the first movie directed by this director,which as a former famous HK Actress,so given a higher evaluation,just for encouragement;

But it must be noted that: I agree with a fan's view - The compassion is above the law, which is not good, this is the confusion and loss of values
