Aberdeen
3 April 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

While I do read as little as possible before going into a movie, always be aware of what you just saw. In other words, don't blame the movie for not being what you expected it to be. Heard that a lot lately, like the trailer promised me this, the poster looked like this. It's not the movies fault, but the marketing people of the movie (another reason not to get too much information beforehand).

This is a movie from Hong Kong, but is not action nor silly comedy. And even if some actors have done both, in this case they do slow paced drama. And they're doing a pretty solid job. While this is not the best drama I saw in 2014, this still is pretty good. It paints a picture (or more) of people trying to cope and understand things. To live in a weird world sort of ... And putting their thoughts and some interesting ones at that, out there ...
