Eric Kot makes a mystery guest appearance with Chrissie Chau

Chrissie Chau Sau Na earlier worked with Eric Kot Man Fai at Central's Soho on the film adaptation of the play 29+1. Back then the Kearen Pang Sau Wai written and directed play was a commercial and critical hit and had many repeated runs. Chrissie in the film also had to perform from the beginning to the end, which to her was truly a huge challenge. Although she has been working on movies in recent years, she still lacked a representative film that recognized her acting. Chrissie did not relax at all in search for a breakthrough, on the set she appeared to be deep in thought and concentration for the long run. Even when the team took breaks she remained very anxious. Off camera she had little exchange with Kot Man Fai. For them to relax and get into character, the team during the shoot played Japanese singer Toshinobu Kubota's 90s hit LA LA LA LOVE SONG. Kot Man Fai began to move to the music, drastically different from Chrissie's anxious state.

Playing a taxi driver, Kot Man Fai was a surprise guest star. To keep the mystery on his character he never appeared during the film promotion. The shoot location was also a Mid Level street with few people, everything was kept very low key.
