The lyrics express the regret and helplessness of losing love, which echoes the events that Sammo’s character, Old Ding, has to experience throughout the film. In the movie, Sammo is a retired bodyguard suffering from early dementia. Because of his fading memory, he loses his granddaughter. He then meets a young girl by the name of Chunhua, the daughter of his next-door neighbor (Andy Lau), and strikes a close friendship with her. However, her father’s involvement in the China-Russia border conflict and the crime lords have put Chunhua’s life in danger, and Old Ding uses anything he can to save her.

Sammo stars and directs The Bodyguard, his first directorial movie since 1997’s Once Upon a Time in China and America <黃飛鴻之西域雄獅>. Andy is credited as the main producer, in addition to making a special appearance in the film. Also co-starring in the film is Hu Jun (胡軍), Feng Shaofeng (馮紹峰), Eddie Peng (彭于晏), Tsui Hark (徐克), and some of Sammo’s Seven Little Fortune classmates, including Yuen Biao (元彪), Yuen Qiu (元秋), and Yuen Wah (元華).

    #AndyLau sounds good in his new song, “Forgive Me”. His voice is still smooth and reminds me of his 90s melodies. The film appears to focus on Sammo Hung more though.

      @jayne yeah Andy just made a special appearance in this. Main leads should be Summo and the daughter.

    Sounds like an interesting movie, though to be honest, I want to watch mainly for all the cameos from the veterans, especially the old Cinema City team (Tsui Hark, Karl Maka, Dean Shek…too bad Raymond Wong isn’t in this otherwise it would be a true Cinema City reunion!) as well as the Seven Little Fortunes.

    Definitely sounds like a sad movie, but still a worthwhile watch, especially if it brings more awareness to dementia and its impact on those who suffer from it.
