[Johnnie To's] vast experience and finely honed skills help the ghost story/romance Linger occasionally step over the puddles of goop.

Audience Reviews for Hu die fei (Flying Butterfly) (Linger)

Even an experienced director like Johnnie To can make such a terrible one. Very shallow and childish approach to Zhuangzi's Butterfly Dream. Such a waste of Bingbing Li's beauty if a director doesn't know how to film a star well... And, who's that guy - he should give up to be an actor now. Johnnie To is originally not good at describing characters, and lack of too much explanation was kind of his style in action films, but it does not suit to this kind of psychological human drama. Coppola's Youth Without Youth is much much better as a film dealing with the same topic.

One so disappointing piece directed by Johnnie To which owing much to the hollow & unqualified script.
