What would you do for love?
30 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is directed by Wilson Yip, which stars Leon Lai (he also co-wrote the story for this film), and Faye Wong. This romantic drama was overall satisfying and enjoyable. However, it is at times confusing to follow what is going on exactly, and as well some of the events in the story seem to add nothing to the movie.

The story is interesting, and you can tell they were trying to do something different for this film. Faye Wong plays a party planner named Xin Xiaoyue who breaks up with an outpatient doctor Zhou Qian, which is played by Leon Lai. Trying to forget each other and continue on with their professions, they end up meeting again. Xiaoyue gets a job to plan a birthday party for an elderly rich man, and due to his health, she has to approve of all her plans by the family doctor. Zhou Qian just so happens to be the family doctor. Which begins the story of resealing their love and affection for each other.

The movie also shines in the art department. You've got beautiful scenery shots of Shanghai, and as well for Faye fans, you've got Faye Wong on screen. The music is also really well done for this movie, and the soundtrack is very appropriate for this film.

This movie is really a hit or miss for most people, but I happened to like it quite a lot. It'll gulp you into it's world and swallow you. Thumbs up.
