Beyond Hypothermia

Jacqueline Wu plays a (literally) cold-blooded nameless assassin. She knows only two people, the Cambodian woman who gives her assignments and Long Shek (Lau Ching Wan) at whose noodle house she relaxes after a successful hit. He dubs her 'Pretty Ghost' and over time they form something of a friendship. She decides to quit but when her last job goes wrong she needs more than a change of heart to save herself. A fine example of that winning Hong Kong combination of a heartfelt story and extreme violence.
