Wang's film about Hong Kong's 1997 reversion to Chinese rule stars Irons as John, a foreign journalist who is documenting the city's transition. As he meanders through the city, he bemoans his ailing health, the woman that left him (Gong) and the demise of civilization. Rich filmmaking but a surprisingly weak story.
