Time Out says

Wong's no-budget indie (dreamt up in a night, shot in a week) tells four distinct stories which intersect in the manner of Mystery Train. They range from character-based comedy (a young couple nervously venture into a 'love hotel' for the first time) to Grand Guignol melodrama (a Filipina maid seeks revenge on her two-timing lover - the actress being the director's mother's real-life maid). The best strand is the wicked parody of Tsai Ming-Liang's Vive l'amour: a young guy finds a key to someone else's apartment, starts using it as his own and falls in love with its temporarily absent owner - who turns out to be another boy. Often unashamedly flip and juvenile, the film has enough sparks of invention and wit to keep most people watching.
