Review
by Kozo:

Well-meaning but ultimately useless and uninteresting drama about a blind fellow (Andy Hui) who falls in love with a go-nowhere club girl (Josie Ho). At first, she doesn't notice him but his kindness and decency eventually attracts her. She falls for him, but unfortunately he's caught in a self-loathing loop by then. Will love triumph over hackneyed character issues?

As dramas go, this flick pushes the necessary buttons but its inability to affect borders on the criminal. Director Lee Bo-Cheung directs with the skill of a drunk house painter. He should watch the dramas of Mabel Cheung, Ann Hui, or Derek Yee if he hopes to produce something above-average. Maybe his first smart move should be to select better material. (Kozo 1998)
