Right, well Hong Kong cinema is well known for its sappy romantic comedies, right up alongside with the hardcore action movies. And being a sucker for all things Asian and Hong Kong cinema in particular, of course I jumped at the chance when I was given it to sit down and watch "Dan sun nam nui" (aka "Don't Go Breaking My Heart").
Initially I had not even heard about the movie prior to finding it by sheer, random luck. But seeing that it had both Louis Koo and Daniel Wu on the casting list, of course I was more than intrigued, because these are definitely among the more established of actors in the more recent cinema.
The storyline and plot in "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" was fairly straight forward, even for a romantic comedy. But don't be scared off, because that doesn't mean that the movie wasn't entertaining. I happened to find the movie rather enjoyable and entertaining, to be honest.
I am not overly familiar with Yuanyuan Gao, but I must admit that she really carried the movie quite well with her charming personality on the screen and her ability to bring lots of emotions and charisma to the movie.
If you enjoy Hong Kong cinema and have a taste for the romantic comedies, then you definitely should take the time to watch "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" if you have the chance.
