A summer hit in HK, this romantic fantasy from Jingle Ma is shamelessly manipulative, incredibly cheesy, and totally sappy. It goes to extreme lengths to yank your chains and push your buttons...and it works. Amazingly, this manufactured piece of sap is also an entertaining, compelling movie.

An HK version of Ghost and Always, Fly Me to Polaris stars Richie Ren as Onion, a blind-mute who’s in love with his nurse Autumn (Cecilia Cheung). Before any feelings can be exchanged, he dies in a Meet Joe Black kinda way and proceeds to win a celestial contest. This flimsy plot device states he can have one wish - which he uses to live again. They deny him that, but give him the opportunity to return for one week. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

Cecilia Cheung certainly started her film career with a bang. “Fly Me to Polaris” hits all the sentimental, bathetic and mawkish changes with the subtlety of a Yao Ming slam dunk. It is a formula weeper, a tasteless trip into the heart of a cloying fairy tale. In other words it has a role that almost any actress would love to do and Cecilia wrings every drop of pathos from it. She was terrific. I cried a lot and I think our cat shed a tear or two.

I recommend you to keep box of tissue besides you while you watch this tear-jerker film.

Needless to say more, it's a recommended movie.
