I loved the music, the atmosphere and the scenery. Simple but solid, moving story. Besides, Tony Leung's performance was brilliant from my point of view. Provided that you like drama packed history worth the watch.
Well that's silly, if you go by that reasoning then no-one should be able to favourite it either.
WOW I think this movie is an unknown gem....only 209 checks and why should it be disliked if you don't like leave it be.
