Did You Know?


Loosely based on the play 'Same Time, Next Year' by Bernard Slade. See more »


Three parts of the movie revolves around major events, such as Typhoon Wanda, the death of Bruce Lee, and the Hong Kong stock market crash of 1987. However, these events happened at different times. Wanda struck Hong Kong on 1 September, 1962; Bruce Lee died on 20 July, 1973; and the 1987 stock market crash happened on 19 October. However, there exists an assumption that the male and female lead will meet each other on the same day each year. See more »

something sweet despite it all
13 October 2008 | by (HK) – See all my reviews

It basically starts out that because of some bad weather, a man and woman end up staying in a room overnight in a hotel on an island outside of town. Depsite both having lives that preclude any relationship, they decide to meet again the next year.

As the years pass there are some side stories that are badly integrated and I found a few moments of the passing of time hard to follow. But there is also some rather charming chronicling of Hong Kong's history. Some of the acting is actually quite gentle, but some involves the over-the-top farcical style often seen in Hong Kong movies. In all I'd say that the acting is never great and the premise of the story, while always a winner for me, is not represented fully or fluidly.

But I do think the film has some sort of 50's charm and the HK history is wonderful (but then I am from HK so...). If you have some spare time while cooking or ironing or something, then give it a go.
