There's much to like about Eric Byler's 2002 debut feature, an idiosyncratic take on emotional commitment in laid-back LA: an attractive cast, a determination to surmount Asian-American stereotypes, and some moody sound-track ballads sung by smoky-voiced Cody Chestnutt. Michael (Michael Idemoto) is a car mechanic in love with his downstairs neighbor (Eugenia Yuan), who uses him as an emotional crutch but has sex only with her boyfriend (Matt Westmore). Frustrated, Michael picks up the enigmatic Charlotte (Jacqueline Kim) at a bar, at which point the screenplay becomes annoyingly vague—Byler tries to conjure heavy weather out of Charlotte's mysterious past, but the details are confusing and the ending bewilderingly abrupt. 85 min.
