Introduction
Along with 'good ghosts', the film wnaders about strange architcetures in Hong Kong and recreates special effects through the use of Chines No. 9 Very Fantasic A red light roams through the day in the like of urbanites, as busy, bristling noise of the city is fitted along the hand-drawn steps on the plane that defies both the configuration and the time. As if to recreate the night and day feast from urban saloons of early years, natural colors of inks are put onto the rows of overhead billboards that are uniquely Hong Kong. Fantastic, imaginative city is reconstructed through slow, restless pacing of a girl along the labyrinth, just like the Alice in Wonderland, as the films ralses a certain deja vu that recalls the Hong Kong of the past.
