If two people meet and they both fall in love, that's destiny for sure.If neither loves the other, even if they meet millions of times, it's still not destiny.If one's in love and the other isn't, and the one who's in love grabs on and won't let go while the other just wants to run away, not only is it not destiny...

I liked this movie, really, I did, it doesn't show you nothing spectacular, it doesn't show you something totally new..
But it does show you a great directing (loved the two umbrellas), a great story, simple but great, good actors, some funny moments, some sad moments. A story that you start to enjoy the further the minutes pass, and without noticing you will find yourself wanting the main character to reunite with each other! A movie to watch, and that proves that Johnny To is one of the best director in Asia!
A great story, a story of two people, that can never met, a story of two umbrellas, that we can see from above, but that never cross each other.
Turn Right, Turn Left : Just a great story !
