admirable work
11 November 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

an old fisherman. his work in Hong Kong bay. the dream about the big fish changing his modest situation. and the significant night of hunt. transforming everything. the film reminds "Old man and the sea" o "Alien". but it is ...itself. precise, impressive, careful use of details, using an ordinary situation for a great impact. and this does it different. and impressive. for the wise manner to use 20 minutes. for the discretion about the danger. for the make of each level of story. and, sure, for the wise construction of the end. in same measure, the look of Andrew Ng as Mr. Wong, remains, for long time, present in memory.
