Stolen Love
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Alan Mak.


A young architect (Raymond Lam) gets hit by a car and cannot draw anymore unless he is near a mysterious girl (Rain Li) that he believes he has seen before, somehow. She finds him familiar as well, and both of them cannot remember the last few months of 1999. They spend time together trying to remember and inevitably fall in love. Why don't they remember the first time? At last she knows, and the revelation at the end of the film as to why they've forgotten is the single most stupid thing I've seen in Hong Kong Cinema all year, period. Other than the pathetic ending, otherwise it's your typical romance in the NOTTING HILL vein -- that is, sweet couple with eccentric friends falling in love. Years from now I will have a complete blank in my mind as to how I spent this evening, because the movie is completely, totally forgettable. Even now I'm having trouble remembering.

Rating: Not Recommended (Not Recommended)
