As Tears Go By

As Tears Go By ★★★½

Started off quite well even though it did lack of Wong Kar Wai's style and flair. Techniques and skills that elevated him to an acclaimed director.

The second half is where the film suffered. The romantic side of the story is really well done but the Triad stuff is where it falters. Andy Lau and Maggie Cheung are a great pair and they should have been more on-screen than all the Triad stuff.

So, 3.5/5
