L² Scored: 5.5/10
Not a bad movie, its actually based on an old old novel last time. The only disappointing point is that both Daniel Wu & Michelle Reis don't really speaks good cantonese and their acting are not that good as well. Beside Lydia Sum, the whole movie is consider dull and boring. Luckily with Michelle & Daniel's look + Lydia good comedy skill, this movie is still watch-able~
