L² Comment:
First time ever Anita Yuen acted as an elder character, a good challenge for her during that time. Though not bad, but she can be better if she is given a new chance now. It was sad when i watch it many years ago, now i feel very touching after rewatch it almost 20 years later... I miss my parents :(
