Summary: Awful

*shakes head in disbelief*

How could such a talented bunch make such a waffling muddle ? Leung Po Chi has some terrific films to his name. Lam Wai is always good value, and does a creditable job. And Sally Yeh looks good enough to eat.

I'll admit here that the lack of subtitles made the stupid story very hard to follow. However, apart from the above praise, I can say nothing else good about this woeful effort. I think the script (muddled) and direction (limp and lifeless) must take the blame, and perhaps the excessive focus on the ghost, who is played by the director.

If any one theme of this story were better developed, it may have had a chance. But despite Lam Wai and Sally's valiant efforts, they were held powerless by a confused story.

In case you haven't guessed, I cannot recommend this movie.
