| Quirky and intriguing, well-acted
The story line isn't new, but the telling is, and the actors are first class. There are marvelous touches of humor and poignant yet subtle comments on the human condition. It's a cop film, it's film noir, it's a love story, it's a family drama – a well written, beautifully acted film that will intrigue you and also make you angry. You'll be angry (if you have any sense) because you'll have had a rare chance to see an ensemble of Asian American actors you probably never saw before. Only a couple of the actors will be familiar at all, from single roles in a couple of big films. The talent in this cast and crew is remarkable, and most American film goers will never get the chance to notice their work. Spend an evening with this movie and enjoy a rare treat.
