Beautiful cinematography, weak plot
3 November 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Ko (Andy Lau) is a young doctor happily married to Zi Qing (Charlene Choi) when one evening she is killed in a car accident. Giving up his job as a doctor to become a paramedic, one evening he encounters a car crash in involving a young woman Tse Yuen Sam (Charlie Yeung). Finding that she was the recipient of his wife's heart, and that the transplant operation has not been entirely successful (her body was rejecting the heart), Ko tries to find out more about her. On discovering that her husband, Derek, who has a striking resemblance to Ko, had left her and that her dying wish was to spend time with him, Ko steps into Derek's shoes to try to bring happiness to her and his wife's heart in their dying days.

All About Love is beautifully filmed a very much an indie, art-house style and therefore encompasses visually-appealing photographic shots with interesting camera angles. A few special effects here and there add photography, and I have to say that in terms of the visual element of the film, it is really up there with the top. Congratulations to Jason Kwan with that.

However, this film was meant to be an emotional film. And while it was (there will have been a few tears jerked in the theatres), I didn't feel as though there was much credible emotional depth to the story. Andy Lau does very well and I can't fault his attempts to bring the characters of Ko and Derek to life. But unfortunately, the plot was simple, weak and linear, with not enough depth in the characters to really keep the viewer that interested.

Overall, at the end of the film, I was left feeling that the film could have been much, much better, which is a shame considering the cinematography was excellent. One missed opportunity.
