This is a mediocre film from Hong Kong, still entertaining (that's the reason I give it 5) but full of topics for deserving a higher score. The story is about a girl who travels from Taiwan to Hong Kong for paying posthumous tribute to her dead boyfriend. There she meets common friends and tries to remember her past with the deceased guy (in fact she keeps amnesiac after an accident that almost killed her). There are not many scares and the way is always the same: basically to make louder the sound. While the plot progresses it seems more a romantic movie with some ghostly elements than a genuine horror one. Only near the end there are some twists that complicate the simple story following the premise "nothing is how it seems". The resolution is ambiguous but not bad. The main problem is the absolute lack of originality. Some annoying characters, specially a guy with glasses, don't help. The main actress plays well and she is undoubtedly very beautiful. Direction and score are correct. But Hong Kong horror movies use to be lower than Japanese or Korean and "Forgive and forget" is not an exception (instead of this I recommend "Dream home").
