A beautifully crafted love story
29 March 1999 | by panda-29See all my reviews

The look of the film is glossy and polished as are the stars of the film. The story unfolds and follows the life of a young Hong Kong police officer as he gets involved with another young and cute guy. The ending line in the story is quite profound regarding love; knowing that you have found it, but not knowing where it will lead you. This is one I would like in my DVD collection.
