Gimme Gimme
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Lawrence Lau.

Maybe I need to be younger to enjoy this but I found this adolescent drama about two friends who both fall for the same girl to be rather slow moving and lacking in any really dramatic scenes. The friends are in a high school band, and I appreciated that for once they actually sound like a high school band, that is to say, not very good. Still, I found myself pining for a murder, a drug overdose, a gang fight, anything at all other than still more scenes of High School kids hanging out skateboarding, which is unfortunately all that I got.
