Shirley (Tao Hong) is a karaoke waitress who leads a perfectly normal love life with her fireman boyfriend Ken (Daniel Wu). But one day, she is confronted by Ken's ex-girlfriend Ching (Gillian Chung), who informs her that Ken has a dark side. Ching says that when they were a couple, Ken used to take nude photographs of her. But right after taking those photos, Ken dumped her and posted those photographs all over the internet. As a result, Ching lost her job as a teacher. Shirley initially doubts Ching's intentions, but she soon believes Ching and helps her sneak into Ken's apartment to destroy those photos which are stored in his computer. Fearing that Shirley may be led down the same path as Ching, together the women join hands to plot against Ken. But the truth is not as simple as it seems. Written by
Cynical and disillusioned look at modern relationships
I was expecting much from director Ping after that great, inventive comedy that was Men Suddenly in Black. And my expectations were totally satisfied.
Beyond Our Ken is a magnificently crafted movie about 2 girls, Shirley and Chan who teams up together against the arrogance and hypocrisy of Shirley's boyfriend Ken which happens to be Chan's ex boyfriend.
What will hit you the most about this movie is the extremely cynical and disillusioned look that gives to the modern relationships, all full of joy and sweet things but filled with lurking sadism ready to break out once the relationship is over. Sometimes that will to hurt each others when a relation is broken is justified.. but sometimes it isn't. Trust in a relationship, as this movie rightly observes, is not the simplest thing to attain, and sometime it's nearly impossible, despite the will of the partners..
