Storyline

This is a story in 2005. Christy Lam is a typical city girl born and raised in Hong Kong. She is a month from turning 30, and has just begun to cope with the same struggles shared by most girls of the same age: the almost unbearable stress at work, her aging but annoying parents, and her seemingly stable yet stagnant relationship. All of these only add to her fear for this next chapter of her life. Wong Tin-Lok, on the other hand, is also turning 30 soon, but leads a vastly different life. She has never been in love, and her job is taking her nowhere. And yet, she has always kept an optimistic attitude towards life. On the verge of her next chapter, she makes a bold decision to just pick up her bags and fulfill her childhood dream. They have never met each other, and their personalities are night and day. But as fate would have it, Christy makes a temporary move into Wong's apartment. Through exploring Wong's diary, Christy not only discovers that they share the same birthday, but ...

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?
27 May 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Chrissie Chau is going to celebrate her 30th birthday in a month, and life couldn't be better. She is a liberated woman with a handsome boy friend and she has just gotten a major promotion at work. Why is she so stressed out and why is her life collapsing around her? When her landlord sells her apartment and forces her to move to a month-to-month, who is Joyce Cheng. the woman who is exactly her age and has built an Eiffel Tower on the wall of her apartment?

This well-composed film tackles the issues of thinking you know what you want to do with your life when you're 18, and the choices you make: not bad choices, but choices that turn out to be unsuitable when you're a dozen years older. With a series of well-performed characters, it offers us the truism that happiness lies somewhere between the aimlessness of living in the moment and the constriction of making lifelong decisions, as Miss Chau and Miss Cheng find their lives destroyed by factors outside their control. It's been adapted very nicely from its original stage presentation, with some nice camera-work by Jason Kwan. Mostly, though, it's Kearan Pang's vision that controls, and produces a fine movie.
