| Romantic slickness
Andy Lau as two characters with a doppelgänger with a goatee and pretty ladies Charlie Young and Charlene Choi and Amber. A man falls in love with a woman who turns out to have his dead wife's heart. Of course he falls in love with her -- you knew that, right? This lady's estranged husband looks just like Andy, and that's because he's played by Andy too. This contains lots of cute Hong Kong romantic gimmicks from movies and novels, including ones that Wong Kar-wai has often used in his rapturously stylized reworkings. Here the style is conventional and the thinking trite. The only interest is to see the technical displays, split-up editing, superabundance of flashbacks and computer manipulations, which are extremely slick, without making the material convincing -- though at times it's good for a laugh. This doesn't seem suitable for an international film festival -- so the choice to include it in San Francisco's 49th (April 2006) seems questionable. Nonetheless students and fans of Chinese film-making might want to watch it for its mastery of current clichés and tricks.
