Chinese Chocolate probably Carob with Chemicals
10 November 2012 | by 52jamesSee all my reviews

This is the worst movie I've seen in a long time! Ouch! It's in focus, and has audible sound and some pretty nice colors and costumes: that's the best I can say for it. A couple of pretty women cross paths, but that surely does not make it clear that they were made for each other. They meet all sorts of crummy men, and equally rotten women, make business deals, make money, and if you've got this movie on DVD it's really hard to see why you'd want to watch the whole thing. Do yourself a favor and don't even bother trying to figure out if a prostitute is any worse than a Chinese immigrant to Toronto. None of the characters is developed deeply enough for you to care, much less to understand, if there's a moral point in this horrible show. Or is the point everybody uses everybody else, so you might as well get married in a church to get your green card? Ick! I'm going to have to reconsider my instinct that movies that have won film festival awards might be worth watching.
