Movie Review on The Tenants Downstairs (楼下的房客)

Married for 15 years, Mommy Jane sometimes will look for a date with hubby where we enjoyed some intimacy moment and quiet times together to enhance both of our relationship as a husband and wife. Mommy Jane had a movie date with hubby to watch "The Tenant Downstairs" at e-Curve starring by Simon Yam, our favourite Hong Kong actor.
The Tenants Downstairs is a 2016 Taiwanese black comedy-fantasy-mystery drama film based on Taiwanese writer Giddens Ko's novel of the same name. The film is written by Ko and also presented, produced and directed by Adam Tsuei and stars Simon Yam, Lee Kang-Sheng. Kaiser Chuang, Ivy Shao and Sophia Li which will be released in Malaysia on 25 August 2016.
The movie is about a landlord (Simon Yam) inherits a rental apartment from his relative and the building has been installed with cameras in every corner of the apartment. He then rent out the apartments to tenants which include divorcee, Mr Wang and his fourth-grade daughter; Ms Chen, an office worker who uses her body for financial gain and advantages in the workplace; Mr Chang, a physical education teacher who enjoys peeping on his neighbours; Boyan, a geeky college student obsessed with the idea of having superpowers and a gay couple, Kuo Li and Ling Hu. The landlord also claims that a mysterious novelist, Yingru who lives in the apartment directly under his penthouse. However, the police interrogator states that there is no record of anyone named Yingru lived there.
