Needing You (2000)


Director: Johnnie To, Wai Ka Fai

Starring: Andy Lau, Sammi Cheng

Johnny To took a break from the Triad scene to craft this little gem of a romantic comedy staring two of Hong Kong's biggest pop stars, Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng. This featherweight romantic comedy with nary a corpse in view is a far departure from To's trademark blood-spattered machismo. Lau is the primary star, but the spotlight is stolen by Sammi Cheung in arguably her best screen role.

Kinki (Sammi Cheng) is a quirky love lorn sales agent who comes across as Ally McBeal's poorer Hong Kong cousin. Like Ally, she searches for her knight in shining armor. Eventually she runs runs into Andy (Andy Lau), a womanizing divorced sales manager who is initially annoyed with her. However, his affections grow for Kinki, despite his efforts to ignore them.

But then Fiona, Andy's old flame, enters the scene and can see that there's a spark between Andy and Kinki that she has to extinguish. But just when Andy realizes that he needs Kinki in his life, he finds some unexpectedly tough competition in Roger Young, a young and handsome internet billionaire.

The acting was well done by the leads especially Sammi who played her strange but extremely likable character very well. And a fairly simple script with sharp visuals make for one enjoyable movie. Johnny To translates his dramatic visual flare to this film, also adding in some very interesting special effects that really complement and strengthen the film.
