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.

Top Critic

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.

Screen International

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)

A love triangle that crossed years with some tensions. However why are the Asian movies always portraits the characters with immature emotional development which should have been resolved in their teen years and didn't until their late 20's or early 30's? This story would be appropriate as a teen/high school story as the female character "finds" herself in these relationships.
