" Sparrow " meant Hong Kong pickpockets in the 60's and this was a dying profession. It was gradually vanished due to the high cost and not effective. The story began with a gang of four skillful and smart pickpockets who snatched people's wallets everyday and passed on to each other quickly. One day they met a beautiful young girl who wanted to join them for she had her hidden agenda.
The story was very entertaining and interesting. First of all, each pickpocket could put 6 razor blades inside his mouth while eating without hurting his tongue. Secondly four of them over 700 pounds could ride on one bicycle in the street. (They broke four bicycles while practicing before the film was shoot.)
The ending was the best part of the film. The finale was shoot in the rain in the evening. Everybody was holding an umbrella in the street waiting for the green traffic light. It is a very romantic scene.
On the whole this movie is sentimental and comedic with little conversation only. I highly recommend it.

Good. Entertaining. Four brothers are Sparrows (Hong Kong pickpockets), and Kelly Lin is very good.
