Three stories all with a common theme : conjugal affairs in the ever-changing sexual landscape of Hong Kong. The trio of tales is loosely connected by having the protagonists share a luxury flat. Director Samson Chiu's "Star Hunter" depicts a philandering hairdresser who finally meets his match and discovers love isn't what it's cracked up to be. Yonfan's "Lonely Hearts Club" is a special delight with its balance of comedy and humanity in the May-December affair between a young stockbroker and his boss's soon-to-be ex-wife. Director Sylvia Chang's "Unwed Mother" is about a pregnant lady unsure over the identity of the baby's father. The sum of its 3 parts is a multi-faceted look at love, Hong Kong style, and a revealing glimpse of urban morals in the twilight of the 20th century.Written by
One house. Three different characters all in the search for love. Each character gets a third of the movie with the timeline running. The movie begins in a good way but soon ends up in an upgoing spiral. It just got better and better. Especially in the last part of the movie all things in the movie start to really click and the movie ends on a high. Something rare in these days when movies tend to end awfully...
Maggie Cheung has never looked better then in this movie and Eric Kot is just hilarious as her business partner.
Definetly worth your time!
