Aroview: Sleak and light, this adaptation of the Shuichi Shigeno's famous 'manga' comic by the makers of INFERNAL AFFAIRS, concerns a boy-racer (played by pop-star Chou) who gains considerable skills behind the wheel delivering tofu for his father.

Eventually he is persuaded by friends and family to partake in a three-way race down a winding mountain road, resulting in the film's most eye-popping, CGI-assisted action scenes. Although the technical talk will only appeal to experts, this is rather accessible overall with plenty of humour from the seasoned support cast.
