Such a glorious concoction of humour, energy, style and kookiness rarely comes our way. The two loosely overlapping stories are set around a fast food stall in Hong Kong, with mismatched romance and indulgent heartache the menu for today. The second segment is the stronger, but the film is so fresh and unusual that it more than survives this slight imbalance. 'A Bout De Souffle2 for our times.
