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.
