Movie Info

Abandoned by his family on a trip to Tokyo and desperate to be loved, a fragile simpleton enters into a curious business agreement with a former classmate whose lingering debt to the yakuza has driven him to desperate measures in a hilarious tale of love and swindling from the producers of Infernal Affairs and Initial D. Jun (Leon Lai) may be dim-witted, but his heart has always been in the right place. Soon after Jun's uncaring family callously abandons him deep within the concrete jungle, fate reconnects the down-on-his-luck wanderer with one-time classmate Hoi (Chapman To). A two-bit con man who's currently hiding out from the yakuza loan sharks, Hoi determines to help his old friend find love by transforming Jun into Tokyo's premiere Lothario. Now, as the smooth-talking gigolo's plan begins to turn a tidy profit, Jun and Hoi are about to find out just how much lonely Japanese women are willing to pay for the prospect of true love.

Audience Reviews for Moonlight in Tokyo


I'm glad it wasn't as predictable as the synopsis makes it out to be. Chapman To and Leon Lai meshed pretty well on screen and it was pretty funny at times. The ending was just complete WTF, I mean seriously! I get the whole ballet analogy which they're slamming in your face but the ending didn't really make any sense in the context of the movie leading up to that point. Regardless this was a decent buddy/buddy type of movie as the two "brothers" learn about each other through their gigolo antics.
