| The songs are the good part of this movie. Other than that...
the acting is not convincing. The plot, the set, the indoor lighting, everything looks artificial. It's a mixture of romeo and juliet with phantom of the opera only without the real touch. What a pity that there are not as many good movies made in Hong Kong anymore.
