Summary: highly enjoyable
While I thought Andy Lau did a great job as Ding Li, Leslie Cheung was a bit "shy" & uncomfortable as Xu Wen Qiang. I saw this title years ago, and it was great at the time b/c I hadn't seen any Chinese films for several years! Now that I think of it, it could have been better. The plot was flawed with giant holes. Too bad, because the TV series this title adapts from is without a doubt the best mini series ever made in global history. Everybody I know thinks highly of the series, as do I.
