Lost In Time

Lost In Time DVD VIDEO MOVIE drama tearjerker car accident! English Subtitles 




Before you insert this movie in your DVD player, go get yourself a box of Kleenex. Ready? "Lost in Time" may be a tearjerker but it is a good, heart-warming drama. Cecilia Cheung plays Holly Lam Siu Wai, a young woman whose life turns upside down overnight when her fiance is killed in a car accident. Instead of a wedding and a happy life with her future husband, she is left with the pain of the loss of the man she deeply loved, a mounting pile of bills to pay and a little boy to raise. Her family is no help. They believe that she is not responsible for her fiance's son, Laurie, since she is not the biological mother and never got to marry the father either. In other words, the little boy is not family. Holly's bond with the boy is not a bond of blood, but it is a bond of love and for the well being of this kid, she takes up her late fiance's job as a mini bus driver. As she begins to learn the job, one of her fellow workers, Dai Lau (or Hale as he's called in the subtitles and played by Lau Ching- Wan) feels compelled to keep an eye out for her because he was the first to arrive to the scene of the tragic accident that killed Holly's fiance. As Hale becomes more involved in helping her and Holly comes to rely more on him for advice and support, they start to develop affection for each other, but is it love? Or is it gratitude? Or is it guilt?
"Lost in Time" may be a melodrama but there is nothing melodramatic about the acting. The actors are just perfect for their roles. Cecilia Cheung's petite frame adds poignancy to the scenes where her character is trying to master the mini bus. And she makes it heart wrenching for the audience to watch her character work so hard at trying to hold together a semblance of the life she had before the accident. Lau Ching-Wan is also very good as a bus driver and the man with a few skeletons in the relationship closet. I don't think a more glamorous actor would have filled the role as well as Lau does with his average Joe looks. And the little boy played by Daichi Harashima? Well, he is cute as a button and he'll bring tears to your eyes. This DVD also has a making-of featurette with comments from the cast and director. Unfortunately, this portion does not have subtitles.
"Loss in Time" is a moving and touching drama about coping with loss and about what family is. If this movie does not leave you teary-eyed, at least, it should have you consider buying life insurance if you have loved ones who depend on you financially.

For DVD Player (North American NTSC)

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product.

Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process.
