Quotes

Vincent: What should I say? Remember what Woody Allen said? A relationship is like a shark. It has to move constantly or it dies.
Samuel Pang: Did Alan Tam the singer say that? He only said: "What a trap, and why me, why me". Bullshit!

Wow
27 February 2001 | by piratemattSee all my reviews

Excellent acting, was worth watching just to see Chow Yun Fat's talents. This being the first movie I've seen him without a weapon. Certainly something worth watching.

Good Story, very realistic.

Cinematography needed improvement.
