The third installment in Pang Ho-cheung’s hit series about a star-crossed couple.
Love In A Puff (2010) introduced the couple Cherie and Jimmy who meet over a cigarette in the street after Hong Kong has banned indoor smoking. The follow-up, Love In The Buff (2012), sees the couple break up and reunite in Beijing. The third installment follows the couple to Taiwan and sees their relationship tested when Jimmy’s childhood friend asks him to donate sperm for her artificial insemination. Paul Chun Pui stars as Cherie’s estranged father who turns up unexpectedly with a much younger second wife.
Cast & Credits
His story followed its course, turned into something like "lexicon of love". Cherie and Jimmy are practically old friends than they are for a couple.
Basically the movie talks about them, they are back to work period in Beijing and have settled into a routine with their relationship in a comfortable routine. Jimmy's "godmother" (Jiang Meng Jie) and Cherie's strange father (Paul Chun Pui) with his young bride Apple (Wang Xiao Chen) entered their lives to complement the story. Overall it's not a bad movie but it's not engaging either, just another story of true lovemaking and trials.
Why I liked this movie, becuase the storyline and the jokes are well written. Maybe this one can't top Love in a Puff but still... Also you get to learn about pop culture in Hong Kong too. (The songs were catchy.)
If you are not into movies that are kind of a drag, which have mostly drama in it, this movie together with the Love in a Puff and Love in the Buff is for you.
