Storyline

It is the hottest summer on record. A chauffeur and a foot masseuse romance through text messages, unaware of each other's identities. An innocent factory girl asks her admirer to stand outside in the heat for 100 days to prove his love. A sushi chef prepares the perfect meal so that the food critic he loves will stay with him forever. A blinded photographer must locate the beautiful model he insulted. An old man desperately searches for an antique light bulb for the shrine of his late wife. And each night, an air conditioner repairman challenges a mystery girl to a road race. When a blackout spreads across the city, the city turns to chaos. Can love shine through? Written by Fox International Productions

Unexpectedly good !!
25 February 2010 | by (Asia) – See all my reviews

From the Chinese title, i thought this is one of those silly movies and since ratings here is so low, I wanted to give it a miss. But having not seen Maggie Cheung on screen for so many years, I think I must go for it. From the poster, I thought it's about 3 relationships but it turns out to be 5, real value for money !!

Overall the actings are good, stories good but with some forgivable flaws. The most touching part turns out to be from some unknown actors. Unfortunately, it don't have any good music or song.

I don't understand why quite a few number of voters give it only 1. I give 7/10.
