Storyline

John Liu is an aspiring violinist who is flocked by women like bees to honey because of his handsome face. However what he really wants is to meet someone special who appreciates his violin performance. Eve Choi is a professional translator whose true passion is translating love poems, but for work she is stuck in translating cheesy novels and cheap thrillers which make her feel tense and frightened. Living in different units of the same apartment building, separated by one thin wall, they have brushed shoulders in crowd hundreds times, but their paths never really cross. One day in the park, they finally bump into each other and spend a beautiful afternoon together. Rain starts. They exchange phone numbers and quickly run home, but the rain has soaked through their precious scrap of paper and the phone numbers are hopelessly smudged. Written by Sonja Pavkovic

Quotes

John Liu: 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... It's pain.

more than serendipity!
21 May 2005 | by yan_widjayaSee all my reviews

I very like this movie, Turn Left Turn Right. The genre romantic movie about boy meet girl, boy love girl, separated and meet again. But this Hong Kong movie is different and unique. Before, my favorite romantic movie ever is Serendipity (2001, directed by Peter Chelsom, starring John Cussack and Kate Beckinsale), see how funny when they seeking each other, from New York to Los Angeles. But now my salute to Johnny To (the director of Turn Left Turn Right)and Takeshi Kaneshiro-Gigi Leung (of course two leading player for this movie). See the desperately about Takeshi and Gigi when they only two time meet in 13 years! The fate, the meeting, and the love, are written from Sky. Remember, Jesus Christ says, when two people want something, anything, and pray together, so the Lord will blessed them! Amen.
