Rating 7.5
23 May 2019 | by madbird-61243See all my reviews

The acting of leads is superb. The female lead is in particular harilious. Her exaggerated type of acting makes me think of Stephen Chow.

The story is however not what I expect. No well planned stories of cheating. No clever ways of cheating. The movie focus not on process of cheating but the reason and emotional impact of cheated and being cheated by the leads. I expect a movie with douban rating of 8.7 have both intricated storyline and sensational scenes. But it lacks the former. It is overrated in douban.

But in case you are satisfied with a film which is slightly better than average, this movie should be in your shopping cart.
