15 January 2001 | by leeyinyin_2000See all my reviews

Both main characters are portrayed well in this movie. We can see the mature, independent divorced woman in a Maggie cheung or Ellen and a selfish childish easy going guy in a Leon Lai or Mike. Both are portrayed perfectly. We might dislike a character like Mike in the story, but that is fact!

The only unbalanced thing is the setting for Ellen's house which considered too lux for a cab driver. Maybe there should be a line to cope with such situation, like the ex-husband is supporting them, and she work as a cab driver just as part timer, etc etc.

In a rough way, this film is excellent! All the dialogues, the house interiors, costumes, and fact of life is described very well.
