Deep, very deep...
11 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's hard to summarize this movie without giving anything away. I will however praise the actors and the production team for doing an amazing job! The movie's soundtrack is one of very few on my ipod that I can listen to daily, after watching the movie the first time it's really worth it just to go back and re-watch it, focusing on the scenes with the backing tracks. They really add amazing atmosphere (and meaning to a small few scenes in particular!) Rainie is amazing as Jade, especially for those that are familiar with her music and drama roles. As soon as the music rolls, the intro titles come up and the viewers see rainie for that first time as Jade, you'll realise you're in for a real treat! Some parts of the movie, typical of foreign movies (if you're a frequent viewer) leave you sitting there thinking, 'what...?' but tie in with the script towards the end, if just barely.

One thing that I really liked, which others may not, is that it is definitely original, unpredictable, and the relationship between the main characters has you glued to the screen in anticipation. Definitely one of my favourite movies that is watched over and over and over.....
