Movie Info

Hong Kong filmmaking team Johnny To and Wai Ka-fai co-directed this romantic drama about a lonely man and woman who are perfect for each other, but always seem to just miss meeting. Takeshi Kaneshiro plays John Liu, an aspiring concert violinist who spends his days playing for the birds in the park and fending off the unwelcome advances of fawning women who don't interest him. Gigi Leung is Eve Choi, a literary translator who prefers to work with poetry and often finds herself frightened by the horror novels to which she's assigned. As the couple live out there lives separately, living next door to each other in the same apartment building, their lives parallel each other almost identically until they finally meet. But even then, the pair is separated and must struggle to reunite. The title, Xiang Zuo Zuo, Xiang You Zou translates to Turn Left Turn Right. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

A pure piece of fluff that's sustained by clever plot twists.

Audience Reviews for Heung joh chow heung yau chow (Turn Left, Turn Right)

Based on an illustrated book, this romantic comedy is somewhat weaker than what it's based on. Their love is supposely forbidden, so even though they are neighbors, and even showed up together in photographes, they never get to actually know each other. Through their effort, they finally made an earthquake ending...literally.

This movie didn't know if it wanted to be a romantic drama, romantic comedy, or just a mindless comedy. I almost couldn't finish it midway through the film. The silliness was just too much for me to bear.

I love romantic comedies, and I espcially love ridiculous situation romantic comedies! For all those girly-girls out there, this is a must see!
