Summary: Great film
Finally saw it. My expectations were high, having always seen it regarded as one of the crown jewels of HK cinema. I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. I was highly engrossed in the intense drama. Great performances by the entire cast. Cora Miao is so beautiful, seductive, and mysterious here.

The language choice was distracting. A Japanese visits Vietnam and talks to all Vietnamese people in - you guessed it - Cantonese. Other than that, film is almost perfect.
