in response to a short part-of conversation on much-loved movies tonight, i think this may well be my favourite movie of all time. maybe you're right - i didn't realise it back then, but now i know exactly what i love about it.
it's about alienation in a big city - it's such a lonely flick. it has rain, and grey skies, and umbrellas. and it has a very simple plot, not much speech, but a lot of thought. it's almost like the chinese/cantonese version of lost in translation, only simpler, cleaner, and imho, better.
