Director: Matthew Victor Pastor
Starring: Matthew Victor Pastor, Janice Keung, Carol Pastor, Victor Pastor, Cici Zhang, Charlie Dao, Benny Li, Angelica Hau, Beatrice Chiew, Wong Bo, Grace Cheung, Tsui Pei

Grasping to his own insecurities and eccentricities, a young Australian filmmaker (Pastor) with serious 'mummy' issues runs away to Hong Kong and develops a schoolboy crush on an older woman (Keung), both of whom teach each other the harsh realities and responsibilities within a relationship.

The film begins with a series of vignettes that aren't all that interesting, and seem more in keeping with a film-school student. However once it gets into the real bulk of the story it starts taking shape and is surprisingly effective thanks to the efforts of Keung, who's a real find, and Pastor who really puts his body and soul into explaining the frankness of all relationship realms.

Unfortunately, as good a writer and actor as auteur Pastor can be, he is so focused on performing for the camera that as a Director it overshadows mixed performances from amateur actors and the story as a whole keeps losing focus. The edit, in particular, tries to pad out the running time to feature length. However, there is much to admire and Pastor certainly has a few things to say.

Rating: 3/5
