These two talented actors brought their A game to this movie. Not sure why this isn't a 10 star on IMDB - perhaps a lot really is lost in translation - but this film swept in the Golden Horse Awards in Hong Kong -- Best Film, Best Actor to Anita Yuen, etc. etc. This movie touched on so much -- the complexity of relationships, life in poverty, life as musicians, dreams gone astray, love and, most importantly, the appreciation of life.
Min's note at the end to Kit always gets me -- and I've watched this at least 100 times:
