In 1937, during the war, a man (Kenny Bee) and a woman (Sylvia Chang) met under a brigde, and without seeing themselves in the darkness, they promise to meet again after the war.
This is a tribute to old Chinese and Hollywood comedies from the 30's and the 40's. Tsui Hark mastered the abrupt changes in tones from fast paced and burlesque comedy to touching emotions. He displayed as well a mix of love stories, parodies and misunderstandings. Tsui Hark considers this movie as his favourite one and we consider it as the best example of what the Tsui Hark cinema can offer.
