Thumbs up to the cameraman ... only.
20 February 2002 | by ants7See all my reviews

A ruthless editor would have done the film far more justice as it was really much longer than was needed to get the story across. Not wanting to give anything away, I have to say that the angle on Nazi gold (this comes up halfway through the film) seems totally out of context to the exploration of a part of the Hong Kong homosexual lifestyle. Although the story tries to put justification to it, I'm really not convinced - but then, maybe I just didn't get it. The acting left a lot to be desired, but they were apparently amateurs and so hence the result. It was particularly embarrassing when Cheri Ho delivered a long monologue that would have been difficult for the most seasoned actor to play. The director was really asking too much from the talent. There were rare clever comical moments that raised some laughter and appreciation from the audience, and I was impressed with what can be achieved using a DV Camera, so my hat off to the cinematographer.
