Jimmy and Cherie are driving each other nuts, starting a cycle of breaking up and getting back together. Work has them moving to Beijing, both with new relationships. Despite thinking that they won’t be running into each other, they manage to anyway—and suddenly they’re cheating on their partners.
Fueled by its easygoing lead actors, director Pang Ho-Cheung strikes the perfect balance between humor and melodrama in this charming love story. Depicting a glossy Beijing rife with young professional singles, the film is also a universal look at modern dating in all of its virtues and faults.
