    Ringo Lam was really in his bag in this! A film that really surprised me even as a Lam fanboy.. Enjoyed how he played with the chemistry of Andy Lau and Jacklyn Wu by building from their roles in A Moment of Romance–especially in the American arc of the film (even though I consider it the film’s weakest part). Adding Rosamund Kwan, in probably her best performance, into this dynamic was startling. Kwan gives us one of the most unhinged performances in all of Hong Kong cinema–many of my favourite parts of this film have to do with her.
