25 September 2002 | mc12000
Above average romantic thriller
The film begins in Japan where a man (Leslie Cheung) proposes to a woman (Takako Tokiwa). Unfortunately, the man dies in a tragic car accident and the girl is left very depressed. Unable to let go of the past, she decides to visit the man's home country (Hong Kong). During her visit to his HK offices, she bumps into an undercover cop who bears an uncanny resemblance to her boyfriend.

This film is basically a romance mixed in with a police story that is quite frankly filler material. Leslie Cheung plays a character (Sek Gar Bo) who has been driven into his work through grief at losing his girlfriend. Takako Tokiwa plays the female lead (Hitomi) who becomes immersed in Gar Bo's problems. There is a cameo appearance from Michelle Yeoh whose screen presence never ceases to amaze me. Her brief performance alone almost made the movie worth watching. Takako Tokiwa puts on a cute Cantonese accent, and with her charming eyes, she will no doubt keep Japanese girl fetishists smiling.
