Summary: Romantic obsession in Hong Kong
This is a very artsy film about the heartbeat and life of Hong Kong, as it undergoes the changing of the guard. Our hero, an expatriate, has fallen in love with a local girl that he can't have. As Hong Kong's last days tick away, he seeks some kind of understanding into the culture of the country. The movie is kind of slow in places, gross in others, but for the most part it's relatively interesting as a culture study.
