'Aiqing mala tang' ('Spicy Love Soup') starts with a young couple eating sweet (or sour) and spicy soup from a two-sided bowl shaped in a Yin and Yang pattern. Until the couple's wedding at the end of the film, 'Aiqing mala tang' intermittently shows six different episodes about different generations' relationships. Love can be sweet, sour, or spicy. And, you'll taste all those emotions from this contemporary Chinese film 'Aiqing mala tang'. Written by

What a charming film 'Spicy Love Soup' is! I especially enjoyed the story about a bored young married couple who rebuilt their tarnished relationship with remote control toy cars that they got on the wife's birthday. By playing with lots of different kids' toys together, they started communicating again and rediscovered their love. Different people may find different episodes they can relate to in this modern Chinese film. The well construction, good acting, and humorous conversation immediately take you into the film. 'Spicy Love Soup' will give a lot of spices into your heart for sure.
