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.

Audience Reviews for Lost For Words

It's always been interesting yet funny how Hong Kong looks like in the eyes of foreign films-makers. Probably the world of Suzie Wong no more, the film vibes still looks so very awkward however, just like this one. Storyline is totally unbelievable but it did capture certain local phenomenon (one highlight is that: it dares to touch the subject of underground church in China) no matter how shallow & ridiculous it sounds actually.
