• Butterfly Lovers

    Feb 27, 2015

    ‘Butterfly Lovers’ is a forgettable version of a legend that deserves a definitive screen portrayal – it has moments of interest, but proves to be an unevenly yoked movie.

  • C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri

    Feb 27, 2015

    These ingredients make ‘C’est La Vie, Mon Cheri’ a real treat to watch and create an enchanting ambience that draws the viewer in.

  • Cape No. 7

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Cape No.7’ is an ensemble production whose success is tied up with its exploration of Taiwan’s southernmost area, its use of localised flavour and copious amounts of colloquial humour.

  • Changing Partner

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘Changing Partner’ has enough moments of genuine amusement to help paper over the cracks.

  • Cherie

    Nov 2, 2017

    Patrick Tam’s ‘Cherie’ is, simply put, little more than a moderately average eighties romantic comedy and decidedly underwhelming when compared against any of the true “greats” of the era.

  • China White

    Feb 28, 2015

    ‘China White’ is not as accomplished as Yu’s later films and hasn’t dated the best either but still remains an entertaining thriller with some hard hitting action scenes.

  • Chungking Express

    Mar 1, 2015

    Mar 4, 2015

    This is still the kind of delicate drama that has enough of a hook to keep the audience enthralled until the end.

  • Curse Of The Golden Flower

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Curse Of The Golden Flower’ is another sign of the growing confidence of Chinese cinema, the imagination of Zhang Yimou and the iconic status of Gong Li and Chow Yun-Fat.

  • Cyborg She

    Mar 4, 2015

    Kwak Jae-Young has a PhD in stirring emotions and this film has more heart-pulling moments of manipulative magic than a room full of kittens playing with balls of string.

  • Cyrano Agency

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Cyrano Agency’ is a clever distillation of all of those sweeping moments that Korean love stories are known for.

  • Dance Of A Dream

    Mar 4, 2015

    ‘Dance Of A Dream’ is an enjoyable, yet forgettable romantic comedy that is an amble display of the good and the bad of Andrew Lau as director.

  • Ditto

    Mar 8, 2015

    The Korean hit makes ample use of the fine chemistry between its two main stars and the inherent interest generated by such a workable premise.

    Taking a well-trod tale of unrequited love and combining efforts with current hot property Miriam Yeung, Yip imbues proceedings with an infectious air.

  • Duelist

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is a sharply original love story set to incredible moving pictures. It has beautiful actors, heartfelt emotion and a genuine sense of originality.

  • Eat Hot Tofu Slowly

    Mar 10, 2015

    Feng’s achievement is that his work here is a delightful romance while also successfully juggling numerous other sub-plots.

  • Echoes Of The Rainbow

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Echoes Of The Rainbow’ is full of the balancing act between cliché and skilled drama, complete with solid performances throughout.

  • Elixir Of Love

    Mar 10, 2015

    ‘Elixir Of Love’ passes the time adequately, but there’s little doubt that it fails to stretch Riley Yip’s creative excellence and doesn’t even rank as one of Miriam Yeung’s best.
