Quotes

Lee: Suddenly, I realized how ridiculous I was being. The book needs an ending. When it's sold and turned into a movie, what it needs is just an ending. How much of what she said was the truth? And how much was fiction? Does it really matter? Who am I to argue with them?

Excellent!
13 December 2003 | by kz7See all my reviews

For the fans of the so-called "Hong Kong blood opera" -genre this movie is a must see. Great visual styling, great acting, excellent script with originality and good directing. There is constantly the feeling of great drama even in the occasional moment of stillness. When you've seen all the classics by John Woo then movies like this are where you should continue.
