An espionage thriller set in the 1950s and adapted from the novel “Year Suan/Plot Against” by May Jia. Tony Leung Chiu Wai plays a blind man who works for a piano tuner. He is recruited for a spy mission because of his exceptional hearing.
User Reviews: It’s a complex feeling after watching this movie. Even more when complicated when such a heavy and serious movie incorporated with Tony’s witty and semi-funny acts. I really want to like this movie a lot, but really… putting the "tokyo raiders" charisma to this show proves it doesn’t work. What’s more is when the story is pretty predictable to some point it doesn’t make sense. But nevertheless, the setting for the movie is nicely captured… and comes with accompanying music, and of course credit given to those who did a perfect job developing tony’s character. Conclusion, worth watching on a boring weekend or when you have nothing to watch.
