| Fall in Love in Hong Kong
Lost for Words is a simple story about two strangers who fall in love after a chance encounter in a foreign land.

The storyline is ordinary. But the setting is exotic. The aerial footage of Hong Kong is simply breath-taking.

Sean Faris plays a damaged ex-Marine who seeks a fresh start in a new city. Grace Huang is an ambitious ballerina from Mainland China. They meet and the relationship builds, at a deliberately slow pace. By the time they fall hopelessly in love, we come to accept the pacing and tone of this movie.

Joman Chiang who plays the rebellious best friend is the one to watch. Vivacious and luminous, she also provides some comic relief to this at times boring drama.

The third act comes from nowhere and the film changes tone and not in a good way. However, there are enough good bits in the movie to make it enjoyable.
