Movie Review: Nessun Dorma (NC16)
Hong Kong psychothriller Nessun Dorma reminds me of M Night Shyamalan's critical flops.
There are unexpected twists, but alas, the film's direction, editing and casting are executed poorly.
Simin (Janice Man) is having second thoughts about her arranged marriage to the most eligible bachelor in town, Weichen (Lam Ka Tung), because she is secretly in love with maths prodigy Muzhe (Andy Hui).
One night, on her way home, Simin is attacked and knocked unconscious by a masked stranger. When she wakes up, she finds herself trapped in a room and tied to a bed.
Man's wooden performance is a let-down, considering how impressive she was in action flick Helios (2015). And there is no leading man as uncharismatic as Hui, who should seriously just stick to singing.
