Not an easy story to follow, as it unfolds with a current/flashback story line throughout, and you aren't always aware of which medium you're in. Watching this film with someone was helpful(for me) in trying to piece together the story. Yet our combined version differs with the synopsis on the video box.
A movie different from any HK movies I've viewed before. Action begins in a gay sauna.....and I mean action. From there it mellows out, but the movie has a gay theme, so you're forewarned. The movie weaves between (1) pursuit of a widower(?) by a real estate salesman; (2) the husbands recollections of his wife; (3) the swimming trainers affair with the wife; and (4-5) which would give too much away.
Thought the acting and story line were quite good. The movie certainly keeps you attempting to put the puzzling pieces together. Mentioned my interpretation differed from the box synopsis...probably just put more intrigue into the movie, but if you see this movie, remember where the swimming trainer was from and the lack of clarification as to how or when an affair started.
