so romantically touching.
3 December 2011 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

Hong kong films are mostly action packed, comedies, etc. I have never seen any hong kong films like this one before, this one is romantic, touching, a little bit of disconsolate.

I thought that Stephen Fung looks cute, so I wanted to watch this film. In the end, I start to like Daniel Wu better, he looks a little bit like andy lau, and he is shanghai boy.

The story is intertwined with each protagonists, and the love they have for each other is pure. The sex scenes are quite steamy, I doubt that they will make any gay films like this one in hong kong any more. The actors are really good, you would feel as if they are really homosexuals in real life.

I rate this a total 10. I feel that there won't be another film like this made in Hong Kong any more.
