All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • Don't Go Breaking My Heart's Cinderella tale about an ordinary girl caught between two adamant admirers is VIP-class escapism.

  • Their world seems so alive with possibility that you might expect them to break into song.

    May 11, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Except for its weak denouement, this fantasy-world take on romantic rivalry is tightly plotted and frequently funny, with suave lead perfs and glossy production design and lensing.

  • A relentlessly sweet and entertaining urban rom-com.

    March 30, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Each sprawling urban surface in Johnnie To and Wai Ka-Fai's effortless romantic comedy Don't Go Breaking My Heart is a potential window to heartfelt emotional connection.

    October 29, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Though To's twee, naff romantic machinations sag, there is no denying that, in collaboration with his director of photography Cheng Siu Keung, he has crafted a sumptuous film.

Audience Reviews for Don't Go Breaking My Heart (Daan gyun naam yu)

  • Apr 27, 2011
    I was a bit hesitant to watch this movie, but as I was invited to the press screening, I have no choice but to go. Not being pessimist, but I'm not a fan of Asian cinema, moreover a romantic genre. Although I still like Mandarin better, this Cantonese speaking movie is overall a pleasant surprise! <b>Don't go breaking my heart</b> starts out good, tells the story of a girl who got dumped by her boyfriend while following him to Hongkong. While celebrating her heart break she met a street drunk that changes her in one way or another. To complicated thing, the girl also has crush on her opposite work building guy (way too confusing). How the triangle works out at the end of this love tale? I'm not a fan of triangle love story, but this one works out itself smoothly. The actors all did good, nice background music too. Maybe Hollywood rom-com can learn a thing or two from Asian booming genre. 6.5/10.
