Breakthrough performance
2 September 2000 | by MatadorSee all my reviews

I watched this film when it first opened in New York and Boston (television). Mark Harmon's performance was one of the best of his career, but he was overshadowed by newcomer Bo Chun, proving once again that he is the new face of Asian film. His beautiful bronze features framed by locks of jet black hair complement the character of Boy #2 perfectly. His brief role however, though it does set the film's narrative in motion, is unfortunately short lived. I guess we'll just have to catch him in his next appearance at the multiplex.
