Irons delivers one of his best performances in this emotional and artsy film about a British man at the end of his days in Hong Kong at the end of it's days of being apart of Britian. Brilliant direction, and touching scenes make this a must have for people who like to be absorbed in movies that are obviously made with love by the director. BUY IT!
