Produced and directed by Johnnie To and Wai Ka-Fai, the film stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Gigi Leung. The story is based on the book A Chance of Sunshine by Jimmy Liao, who makes a cameo appearance in the film. It is also the first Chinese-language Asian film ever from Warner Bros.
The original graphic novel is now sold under the name "Turn left, turn right" and consists of a series of detailed cartoon images, with a small amount of text in a diary style. The film has managed to include every single image in the book with a high level of accuracy, although some are fleeting.
Leung plays a translator and Kaneshiro plays a violinist who live parallel lives and appear to be perfect for each other, but somehow fate seems to keep them apart.
Cast & Credits
I liked the movie because the story was interesting and the actors were really good in portraying their roles. It was a fun and heartwarming movie that depicts how destiny can sometimes be playful on people. Some of the scenes were really quite unexpected... The start may not be that good but it somehow pick-up along the way and it became really interesting. You'll be looking forward as to how the story would end...
Overall, it may not be that outstanding but it is a satisfying and a nice movie to watch. It would show you how destiny can be cruel yet COOL!
Maybe its the slowest movie I ever watched, but can you love a movie like that? Yes, you can!
Though the quality of the vids I used were very bad, I was drown in the movie until the last minute.
Both main actors do their job 100 percent. I loved how they act in a similiar way, just like the movie needed it.
The music is not that good, but it also doesn't bother you or disturb the story.
If I could do I would have given the movie a 10***** score.
Rewatch value? Dunno how many times I rewatched it.
Just watch this movie.
You need eyecandy? Takeshi Kaneshiro is the manliest eyecandy you can get.
