Flirting

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.
