Inspired by an Asian proverb, this tells four interweaving stories. In Happiness, a miserable banker (Whitaker) makes a risky bet; in Pleasure, a psychic henchman (Fraser) works for mobster Fingers (Garcia), who takes on the management of singer Sorrow (Gellar). Love sees an enamoured doctor (Bacon) try to save the life of his best friend’s wife (Delpy).
An affected, overblown ensemble drama, this is far less profound than it would have you believe. But thanks to a lively plot and a strong cast, it’s not an unpleasant watch – just a disposable one.
