  • msmichel's rating of the film Breakup Buddies

    Ning Hao follows up his Coen Bros like 'No Man's Land' with this mainstream, gross out comedy smash that certainly casts light on changing morals and behaviour in modern China. Very much a regional comedy with the jokes coming fast and furious but with little cross over success. Huang Bo and Xu Zheng are both very good here but in the end its just a silly comedy looking to match the box office of previous teamups.

  • Martin De Martin's rating of the film Breakup Buddies

    Simpatica commedia cinese con un'affiatata coppia di protagonisti. Se l'intento era quello di scardinare chissà quale ordine morale nella Cina moderna, direi che non ci siamo proprio. Però ci si diverte e gli spunti interessanti non mancano, nonostante il finale pasticciato. Mezzo punticino in meno per le sfacciate citazioni a Oldboy, davvero superflue e fuori luogo per un film al quale le idee non mancano.
