Love in a Puff

Director: Pang Ho-cheung/2010/Cantonese/Colour/95mins

Cast: Miriam Yeung, Shawn Yue, Cheung Tat-ming

The pretext to romance can't be cleverer: two people brought together thanks to the smoking ban. She sells cosmetics and he's an ad man, and they meet at a street corner where fellow smokers gather to puff away and mouth venom. Director Pang and co-writer Heiward Mak have crafted a romantic comedy that's a rarity: capturing reality. The leading duo and the supporting roles are all "Me Generation" smartasses: mean, opportunistic, and smugly addicted to commercial culture's poison of "sex" and "romance". The film tells a "romantic" story of two such creatures and gleefully bares their soulless souls.
