"Sometimes, only here and there, does it rise to its potential."
3 stars

Quiet little movie, partially because of the horrible, low soundtrack, that finds itself somewhere along the lines of a structureless character study, much like Morvern Callar.

It shares some nice moments of the foursome Asian characters being themselves, tangling with strewn-aside issues of love, mostly between a lonely mechanic and his tenant/friend, complicated by matters of her boyfriend and a mysterious drifter whom the mechanic begins to date. Illustrations of unrequited love are adeptly used (when the “drifter” asks if there is anything the mechanic can’t leave behind, his uncontrolled reaction is an innocent coup d’oiel at his friend), but the lasting impressions of the movie are vaporous at best. Michael Idemoto especially rings effective as an Asian Pruitt Taylor Vince. However, unlike Morvern, this isn’t so nicely shot. With Eugenia Yuan, Jacqueline Kim, and Matt Westmore.

[See it if you must.]

7/03/03 do not look confusing, overly complex film about a very forgettable non-relationship. 1 stars
