A beautiful story of love and transformation
21 June 2018 | by from-nsj4See all my reviews

This is the story of how a greedy and shallow woman is transformed by love. In order to appreciate this movie, you have to get past the first part, where actress Shu Qi plays a very unlikable character, who uses her policeman friend to clean up her messes with no regard for his feelings. If you can persevere through that, she eventually realizes that her former life is worthless, and that he is the only one worth caring about. Then the film becomes a beautiful love story. Shu Qi does a great acting job in this movie. Watch for the scene where she is drunk walking down an alley. It's a long scene done as a single shot. If you're going to watch this movie, watch it until the end. It's worth it.
