Great movie
11 July 2009 | by lavalwongSee all my reviews

This is a totally different style of movie that we are so used to see from Jackie.

It is however a very touching story that i highly recommend to others to watch.

The movie is enticing all the way and the directory has done a fantastic job in his filming and story telling.

Given my background, i can very much identify with the characters in the movie.

Life is full of surprises, highs, lows, twists, irony, love, hate, joy, pride and all these are found in the movie.

Just loved it.
