A small moody almost film noire styled movie in
which a young lower class worker in Macao brings back a bride from Thailand
and then begins to treat her quite badly. An attraction grows between her
and his best friend and the usual tragic complications ensue. It feels
almost like a three character play as most of the film plays out in a confined
sweltering Macao apartment. Itís slow moving and drags at times, but good
performances by all three characters make it worthwhile viewing. Very different
from most HK films in its pace and atmosphere.
