Review
by Kozo:

Pretty lousy movie has two parts and no real correlation. Part one is a supposed mystery about a wacky reporter (Mark Cheng) who investigates the life of a recent widow (Emily Kwan). It seems she has three recently deceased husbands, so obviously Mark suspects a scoop. Story two is a thirty minute fluff-fest about some Hong Kong office girls who watch a boss' beach house and meet the local boat boy (Patrick Tam of Beast Cops). Crickets baking in the sun are legendary entertainment value compared to anything in Love in the River. Uh, not to sound crass or anything, but was anyone really interesed in seeing Emily Kwan Bo-Wai naked? With crap like this in the theater, you'd think the film industry would figure out why no one goes anymore. Go watch something else. Anything else. (Kozo 1998)
