      Grant Watson Fiction Machine This is the kind of Asian film I enjoy – not simply a well-crafted movie but one that is culture and site-specific. You’re simply not going to get this story out of Hollywood. Rated: 6/10 Aug 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Perfect both the story and the actors. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member slow and somewhat unbelievable Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Accidentally switched the audio stream to Mandarin dub, and realized that the lousy Mainland dubber already killed half of the film's emotion by her lack of husky voice - or the distinctive "Cecilia's voice". Despite all the crazy scandals, or her up-and-downs in the career, Cecilia really possesses an incomparable charm among her generation (of Hong Kong actresses), which can be proved by this film. From the very first film (King of Comedy), Cecilia already showed that she could be at her best with characters that try to cover their fragility and loneliness by strong-will and reckless behaviour. And maybe she needs that kind of role again (and such good director like Derek Yee) to revive her career, a chance that she deserves because that is also a chance for the Hong Kong cinema to get back its treasure - one of the most original actresses in recent years. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Great acting, great story though nothing groundbreaking. Sweet, mature and intelligent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An excellent romance drama from Derek Yee. He scores fantastic performances from Cecilia Cheung and Ching Wan Lau, who have some complicated character flaws as the story progresses. As it is rooted in character development,the growth is very apparent and it makes for a very good movie. If I had to compare, it's like the Hong Kong Kramer vs Kramer. (in terms of tone and quality, not plot) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member A surprisingly well-felt drama anchored with the one-two punch of Cecilia Cheung and Lau Ching-Wan. OR the best movie I've seen that pulls a ramen metaphor. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
