Interesting plays with your senses
9 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is very interesting, the characters may not be developed to a certain depth but thats the point of this film, the director is obviously trying to leave us with certain questions and we must find an answer to. However, the film does not leave you wanting to know more but its rather an experience. A sensory experience, I should say.

The film has bright colors that cannot help but to captivate your eye and if you listen closely the use of sound by the director is impressive, he plays with color and sound through out the film, so it feels like an experience with your senses rather than just watching a film with an obvious plot. This movie is great for anyone looking for something different and new.

However Chan's more plot developed films are The longest summer and Made in Hong Kong, the cinematography in these films is not great but the stories are incredible. Hope this helps.
