Who says that commercial romantic movies starring HK popstars can't be good? Well, that's what most people used to think, but after Neo revisiting the weeply romantic drama - Fly to Polaris, he finally realize and reminds him of the feeling of regret of missed opportunities in love. Jingle Ma, is now one of the most money minded director in HK and surprising back in 1999, he made this one of a kind touching yet manipulative romantic movie that got Neo actually almost to tears. As I have said on many occasions, a good movie does not have to have the most brilliant plot but it is how you ultimately feel about the movie that really counts and a good movie will always say something profound or remind us about what is missing in our lives. While this is increasingly hard to seek for in most movies nowadays (that's including Hollywood), this 1999 production is a hell of a good touching movie.

I rate it 9/10
