Jason Chen - a young chinese immigrant to New Zealand, keeps his love for Kiwi girl Skye secret from his disapproving mother Alice. Things quickly unravel as his mother introduces him to Madam Yin, a matchmaker who has a very special bride in mind for Jason - the mysterious and silent May Ling. When Chen proposes to Skye, tensions arise from his parents and the woman they wanted him to wed. The traditional Chinese culture clash is nothing compared to the conflict of two worlds: the living and the dead. The photography and music is above average, but subtitles would have helped overcome the below average spoken audio; it's not as if it overflows with dialogue. This is definitely the best lit ghost story I have seen and is David's best feature to date. I can recommend this, if this genre is your 'Cup-of-tea'.

Censor Rating: R18 - Review Rating: C+
