Even if the best of families...
29 October 2006 | by sangepengyouSee all my reviews

Delightful comedic Hong Kong romp about the perils of young love and how things can get out of hand when family mixes into the mix.

Candy Lo plays Kaka, a young would-be misfit, who manages to land a job at a company because of an unexpected letter of recommendation from a family fiend. On the way to the interview, she meets Sang only to discover later that he is her new boss. He is from a wealthy, flamboyant family who are superstars of the HK social scene, while she is strictly working class. As an unlikely and unexpected office romance begins to blossom between the two of them an even more unexpected complication pulls a dark cloud over their relationship. When Sang's father learns of the pending engagement, he is delighted until he learns Sang's fiancée's identity then immediately orders his son to break off the engagement-- all because of a family secret. Jilted without warning or reason, Kaka nearly goes crazy with grief until yet another family secret explodes on the scene and complicates things all the more.

Lies upon lies reveal an almost incomprehensible tangled web of deception that just may never become unraveled. And, just when it seems like everyone will go mad, even more unexpected secrets boil to the surface. In the end, things are not always what they seem...or, are they? A seemingly ordinary premise takes some downright crazy twists and turns and serves up some truly genuine laughs. This is truly one off-beat film, but definitely one good for a laugh.
