This film is beautifully shot illustrating a bustling, colourful district in Hong Kong.
Daniel Wu stars as a chef, who like most chefs likes his sauce. And Miriam Yeung plays a 'bar girl' who's willing to supply him with all the sauce he can handle!
The two leads then decide to go into business together, live together, fight together, split up together, and get back together. In other words Romantic Comedy. Supporting is a quirky group of characters all adding to the film.
Overall - Wit, Charm, Colour
