Chinese Box


(out of 5)

Touching romantic triangle set against the backdrop of an ever-changing Hong Kong preparing for the Communist takeover.  gives a brilliantly understated performance as a dying journalist who hasn’t gotten over his love for the beautiful .   is also marvelous as a street hustler with whom Irons finds himself getting deeply involved.
