Hope endures, but not for this movie.

It's curious that the only conflict mined from this bicultural relationship is strictly linguistic.

Perhaps only an expat like American-born, Hong Kong-based director Stanley J. Orzel could create a tribute to his adopted city as loving as Lost for Words.

[Faris'] relationship with co-star Huang, while cordial, hardly reflects an emotional connection strong enough for him to conquer his character's post-romantic breakup stress syndrome.

"Forget the words, follow your heart" is this film's oft-repeated Hallmark card sentiment. You may just want to forget the movie and follow the aisle to the exit.

An adequate romantic drama of star-crossed lovers. Good shots of Hong Kong.
