Plot: Tung (Vic Chou) is dating Fan but infatuated with Gia (Li Bing Bing). Tung suddenly dies in a fatal car accident and Gia is badly affected. She relies on medication to escape from the reality and her true feelings toward Tung.
Three years passed. Gia takes advice from Dr Yuen (Roy Cheung) and finally relinquishes the medication. She starts seeing Tung repeatedly in her dreams and begins to suspect that her encounter with Tung is real. At the same time, she realizes that she has fallen in love with Tung slowly.
At last, Gia frees her true self to Tung and he fades away gradually as they both defeat the affliction within their hearts.
«Poor character development, lifeless acting, a pedestrian script, and unnecessary subplots make Linger pale in comparison to the movie it copied (which I never imagined to be possible). And though director Johnnie To's attempt at horror/melodrama is tragically hilarious, this film won't make you laugh or weep.»
«Despite a sometimes clever script, Linger has a hard time affecting, and proves to be more interminable than interesting. A disappointing effort from Johnnie To, and proof that even the greatest directors don't always bring their A-game.»
