Summary: Nice idea, shame about the movie
Wai Ka-Fai's first movie as director, and Chow Yun Fat's last movie before heading off to Hollywood. I'm not quite sure how to review it to be honest. The movie has lots of good things going for it - great sets & visual style, interesting concept, good characters for Chow and Cecilia Yip... yet somehow none of it came together for me. I never felt particularly involved in or moved by the movie. Too much of it seemed disjointed, or unrealistic... whenever there was a crowd of the hotel residents together, the acting seemed to be woefully sub-par. Or maybe it was the directing.

Overall, whilst I thought it was an interesting idea, the movie itself left me cold.
