In Cantonese, Mandarin and bits of English. Set in Hong Kong. Based on an actual event.
Contains a strong plot and a somewhat over long narration.
The first part covers the discovery of the crime and the police investigation. The second part tells the story of the 'victim'. The third part unravels the motivation. Horrifying and sad, but gives closure to the detective (Aaron Kwok).
Good human interest story without the psychoanalysis. Aaron Kwok plays an eccentric detective. Fine performances from the young cast; Jessie Lin and Michael Ning.
Warning: It's for an adult audience. Some steamy sex scenes and gore.
