Unhappy, and barely together. Evokes malaise and marginality in post-Handover Hong Kong in familiar terms.
I'm all for elliptical character relations and slow-build plot disclosures, but I'm not sure how the enigmas in this script really serve it.
No surprise that the director is a cinematographer, given the care expended on color, light, and framing, but there's not much else to note.
