Summary: Solid black comedy
Here is a highly impressive debute from Edmond Pang. Although a black comedy by nature, at heart it reflects the local state of affairs. You can feel the financial crisis in the air when characters discuss their unemployment, and their misfortune from the real estate price tumble. As well, the numerous commentaries on local filmmaking are quite humorous. The first half of the film is extremely well done, while the second half doesn't have much to offer. The use of jump cuts, the alternative editing technique pioneered by Jean-Luc Godard, works very well in several scenes. Great effort overall.
