v. sweet, enjoyable rom com
24 January 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

With a name like "Dry Wood, Fierce Fire", it doesn't exactly pull you in, but this is a romantic comedy worth seeing. It is formulaic but well-executed, with some funny scenes and great performances. The basic plot concerns Alice, a rather eccentric person, who meets and instantly likes Ryan. The two become good friends, but Ryan likes another girl, Michelle, and asks Alice to help him win her heart. Alice agrees, and their friendship grows until it can't possibly be JUST a friendship anymore.

Miriam Yeung is good as Alice, effectively conveying her eccentricities. Sometimes she comes across as annoying, but most of the time, we can relate with her. Alice is a girl who isn't particularly attractive, but has a wonderful heart, and is willing to suppress her own feelings for a guy just to be around him. It's sweet. Louis Koo is WONDERFUL as Ryan. I love how we first meet him: he's walking up the stairs in slo-mo, looking all handsome and macho. He reaches the top of the stairs, takes two steps, and faints. A co-worker looks at him and says (something to the effect of), "Oh, he's fainted again. He was coming up the stairs so slowly, I knew something was wrong." These little effects work wonderfully. THis is the first Louis Koo movie I've seen, and I think he has perfect comedic timing. He's so cute, too.

On the scenes that show Ryan and Alice's friendship growing are so sweet. They shop for furniture and a necklace together, they paint Ryan's apartment together, etc. With some smart writing and wonderful performances, this is a movie you should definitely pick up.
