Summary: Good

Pretty good romance drama, Andy Lau plays his part perfectly, a lot better than most of the other cast.

Still, it has some flaws, and some of the acting was a bit over the top, and it is quite sad, but worth a look.

Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: romantic tearjerker movie

Yan (Hilary Tsui) is keen on becoming a production assistant for the remake of the movie 'Days of Tomorrow', for she knows that her father Fung Tak Shing (Andy Lau), a father she never met, was the lead actor in the original movie. (The character roles and who plays the role is slightly wrong in HKMDB). Her stepmom Sheung (Yip San) has throughout the years not given any details on who her real mother and father were. Through dumb luck, she stumbles upon Nancy Mei Lan (Carrie Ng) one of the directors of the original movie. Between Lan and a cousin of the girlfriend of Shing, the movie takes us back to the romance and history that existed between Shing and Lan and Shing and Ho Bo Ling (Jan Lau Kam-Ling) and Ling and Mr. Lui (Fong Ping). Deanie Yip also has a role in the movie, as Ling's mom.

This movie was the debut for two actresses who later on would become more prominent as TV stars. Hilary Tsui is better known for being the girlfriend of singer/actor Eason Chan, while Jan Lam was nominated for HKFA Best New Actor/Actress for her role in the movie.

Summary: Very mixed romantic melodrama

The first half of the film has many flaws. The story is very hard to follow, due to frequent changes of viewpoint, random jumping between past and present, yet still manages to be mostly very dull !
But past the 50 minute mark, things start to make sense, the pace picks up, and there are a number of memorable and highly emotional moments. Andy Lau, like the other actors, seems to warm to his roles as the film proceeds, which contributes much to the power of the second half.
The only consistent aspect of this uneven film is Carrie Ng's excellent acting, and she plays the corrosive but vulnerable Nancy to aching perfection. To anyone who finds romantic tragedy the least bit touching, keep a full box of tissues handy for the penultimate scene - it's absolutely smashing.

Memorable quote : "They had so many argues".
Overall : The second half is highly recommended. To survive the first half, either be patient or use the fast-forward.

Summary: NULL

A headstrong teenage girl tries to uncover the truth about his father (Andy Lau), a swarthy Adonis and now deceased movie star. Despite cavalier cross-editing between past and present, this re-creation of the '60s HK film world is not without interest.
