This stylish, vividly stunning film is about three women who couldn't be more different: Fanfan (Zhoe Xun) is an x ray technician who has "selective sclerosis", she can't touch a man. Her look reminds me of Josephine Siao, a HK actress from the 80's. The DVD blurb calls her homely. Despite the bowl haircut and big glasses, you know she's actually beautiful. As beautiful CEO Lu (Kitty Zhang)steals men left and right, seemingly unfulfilled in love. Tieling (Kwai Lun-mei) is a rock singer, the youngest of the three at 19 has a boyfriend "X", who is actually her imaginary boyfriend. How do these ladies meet? Fanfan develops pheromones by accident, and the to sexes are drawn to each other. I was reminded somewhat of "Sex And The City", a show I liked (I haven't seen the two films), but this is set in ultra modern Hong Kong and I think guys will like this film. It has some heart, goes a little crazy, and that is okay. Its not a great film and I doubt that was the goal. It does entertain, the characters are fun to watch (especially Zhoe Xun, you can barely take your eyes off her) and its a fun way to spend two hours. Don't expect profundity and I think you'll enjoy it.
