Most helpful review
frustrating but compellingBy a customer from london , 14 Jul 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]The most didapointing thing about the film is that i am sure that much was 'lost in translation'. this is not a fault of the actors who portrayed their charectars well but the subtitles which appeared condensed and clinical.
The film weaves back and forth and english viewers can get lost. Therefore whilst well conceived, can only recomend with reservation.

Not brilliant, but OKBy DavidPollak (8 reviews) , 28 Dec 2011Well I love young chinese men and Chi-Kin Lee is gorgeous. He is also a competent actor. I have visited Hong Kong and enjoyed seeing bits of it again. The story line is interesting enough to keep watching, and the changes of time are fine (compared with 'Soundless Wind Chime' where they are terrible). The best part of the DVD for me was the interviews with the cast! (I always like that feature if it's offered, particularly when they're beautiful.) I wouldn't say rush to rent this though. I feel sorry to say that, because the director comes over as a nice man.
Praying for it to end.By papatez (330 reviews) from folkestone , 26 Dec 2011It's difficult to find anything worthwhile to say about this film, either good or bad. About half way through I lost control of my right thumb and it hit the fast forward button in the hope of finding something worth watching. Nothing appeared but I still couldn't hit the eject button - something kept me watching although I still don't know what! IT might be your thing but it wasn't mine
Well worth watchingBy sailbatten (64 reviews) from London , 10 Nov 2011I enjoyed this movie very much. Overall the standard of acting was high, the flash backs worked well and the locations were well chosen.
A Film that tells it as it isBy OscarFreak (483 reviews) from London , 09 Nov 2010Having lived in Asia for some time over the past 20years prior to my retirement, I saw a lot in this film of life as it is. Agree the direction could have been tighter but overall the standard of acting was high, the flash backs worked well and the locations were well chosen.
love was lost on meBy a customer from winnersh , 31 Aug 2010i agree with a previous review where i think something was lost in the translation. it was well acted and characters well portrayed but something was missing. give it a go but you might be disapointed.
