A well-observed but unfulfilling yuppie comedy starring hit duo Anita Yuen and Lau Ching-Wan.
The United Filmmakers Organization (UFO) brings us this sensitive but ultimately unfulfilling comedy-drama about a young couple’s struggle to achieve parenthood. Basically she wants a baby, he doesn’t, and then the reverse happens. Screen duo Lau Ching-Wan and Anita Yuen are fine as the parents, with Yuen edging Lau in the acting department. Still, the film grows scattered thanks to plot threads that never truly cohere. Director-writer Cheung Chi-Sing eventually relies on the hackneyed flashback montage to tie everything together. A classy, well-observed effort, but not an entirely successful one.
