Espirit D'amour
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Billy Chung.


From the pen of veteran TROUBLESOME NIGHT actor Simon Loui comes an anthology film in much the same style as early entries in the TN series. Three stories about love between ghosts and humans, the first in an office, the second starring Loui as a taxi driver, and the third between a triad ex-con and a nurse. And surprisingly for an anthology film, all three stories are involving. Although the emotion was a bit tinny at times due to the short length of each of the pieces, the actors acquit themselves well and each of the stories have a bit of suspense. At the end, all three of the stories tie up and lightly intertwine, making for a satisfying conclusion. A couple CGI effects are used for cheap scares, though I'm not sure why they are in the picture, except perhaps to make for a scarier-looking preview.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
