  1.  Regular erotica, nothing special 10 April, 2013 On
    Nothing much in this movie about the affair of a young Vietnamese girl with an relatively older Chinese man. Hard to write much about it! At the same time, no major irritants or disappointments. The acting is quite decent – you can see the vulnerability and desire for adventure in the young girl (played by Jane March) and the complete lack of strength and character but a sense of honesty in the guy (played by Tony Leung Ka Fai). The sex is sensuous with lots of skin but overall uninspiring. Probably one of the few movies that are kind of decent but have no layers to unfold in their story or characters. It is right there in the open for you – the Vietnamese setting, affair between a young girl and an older man, quite a bit of sex and a few good dialogues. Period
