Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" and "Vertigo," Dax Phelan employed the technique of limited perspective, in order to control the exposition and create suspense. As a result, Jason Tobin ("Leonard To") appears in every scene in the film and every shot, except for those which are cutaways from Leonard To's point of view. See more »

The credits are the end for most films but are just the beginning for Jasmine.
Emotional, Raw and full of the detail that lets you get caught up and pulled along in a story that has your mind racing at the end. This film is like all great stories, the more you read into it the better it becomes. I find that the action is woven into every detail from the sounds to the very title itself. Don't expect to be finished with this film after the first time you watch it. The tight focus in the huge city of HongKong adds a perfect setting for this psychological drama. The dark tones of the film are laid beside the smooth camera work that takes in the city scape and tiny emotional detail alike. Jasmine is not full of the traditional red herrings of its genera, instead it seems to build the plot points right into the movement of the story itself. The credits are the end for most films but are just the beginning for Jasmine.
