Fa yeung nin wa (2000)



A beautifully shot, gorgeously produced film that lacks only a story AKA a reason to care. The clever construction of the film does hold some interest, but as a human, Alan Smithee enjoys films about the human experience - any part of it. Yes, the two main characters fall in love in the rain, and if I was nineteen, I know that would feel very very important to me. But us grownups like a little content to our story.

It should probably be seen in the theater, where one can relish its beauty. On DVD, it plays best in fast forward.
