This movie is about love in modern age era - 3 guys trying to find love. Instead of sugar coating the story, it basically tells you like it is - love is brutal, unpredictable, what you get is not proportional to what you give, yet a lot of people still spend most of their time & energy pursuing it.
What's unique about this movie is the way it presents the story - comedic with a lots of non-CG effects to visualize emotions of people who are in love. Script was excellent - authentic Hong Kong lifestyle, entertaining way to bring out drama/romance. For those who had similar experience like the main character, it will certainly brings out some memories & show some insights into "meaning of love life".
Directed by Lam Tze-Chung (Fatty from Kung Fu Soccer), it shows how talented he was. The sad part is that Hong Kong film industry seems to care about who you know rather than what you can bring to the table. A talented director like him should focus his efforts in making movies. Maybe he should move to mainland China like Wong Jing and makes more HQ movies like this one.
