Fails to overcome its recycled elements but displays a winning spirit that's hard to dislike.

An utterly charming retro romancer set against a background of '70s movie going.

Just One Look proves that Hollywood doesn't have exclusive rights to jokes about constipation.

Sometimes hilarious, sometimes melodramatic, Just One Look always rings true.

Subtle, and with a surprisingly melancholy aftertaste, it proves that Hong Kong films don't have to be all action to be good.
