Hong Kong director (and HC favourite) Johnnie To’s tick-tock film output has flipped back over to rom-com after hard-boiled crime film Drug War and crime/rom-com hybrid Blind Detective, and this week in Australian cinemas we have his follow-up to his 2011 film: Don’t Go Breaking My Heart 2.
Returning for more romantic hijinks are Louis Koo, Gao Yuanyuan and Daniel Wu, and they’re joined in this film by Miriam Yeung and Vic Chou. Variety have a review up with lots of detail, and I’m glad to see that Lam Suet is in the film as well — stealing scenes as usual!
There’s some screening information and more about the film up on distributor Magnum Films’ website: looks like the film is screening in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide right now.
Here’s a trailer / music video:
