“Love in the Buff”, directed by Pang Ho-Cheung, and the sequel to his 2010 romance drama “Love in A Puff”. Set in Beijing rather than Hong Kong, the new flick tells of the emotional entanglements between the couple as they make up part of a group known as the "North Bleaching Race", or to be more precise, people who come from outside of Beijing.

This movie is the perfect mix of Cantonese and Mandarin. The people who made this movie hiring enough HK and China people to make this movie. The story plot was fabulous. It was honest and relatable to real life relationship situations.It wasn't the typical "OMG, He's an rich asshole and manages to fall in love with a poor girl." The asshole manages to win the girl with effort.You also get to understand the saying "It's not you, it's me" during the movie.

Shawn is pretty good speaking in Mandarin.He barely has the HK accent. But the others not so much. The end of this movie was hilarious though. I heard the ending of Shawn went viral. I also just realized this movie is the sequel to Love in a Puff but I didn't bother watching the first one.

When I first heard that there is a sequel to "Love in the Puff", I wasn't sure if it would be good enough. What else is there to say, when the first part was awesome already? But this movie is simply a perfect continuation - I was in love with the first, but I have to admit, the second is even better. It does not, however, continue the documentary style presented earlier.
The continuity of plot is almost amazing, not only presenting lives of Jimmy and Cherie, but also their friends and families. Puns and jokes are still in place, though the basic knowledge of Mainland and Cantonese popculture would definitely help.
Though it no longer revolves around the problem of smoking bans, the main story remains brilliantly written. Don't even get me started on the fantastic soundtrack. And the ending with the mysterious video revealed is a masterpiece. It leaves me wanting more. Both movies are on my instant rewatch list, and so they should.
