While it's not a game-changer, writer-director Ho-Cheung Pang's sharp rom-com, Love in the Buff, is a realistic portrayal of modern love in all its complexity and pain.

Winning romantic comedy of Hong Kong lovers unable to commit once they move to Beijing. Strong sequel to the cult favorite Love in a Puff.

A romantic comedy that is as interesting for its glimpse into contemporary urban China as it is for the charisma of its leads.

Modern love shifts from Hong Kong to Beijing in the successful sequel to Love in a Puff, a natural, light and convincing rom com very similar to the original Hong Kong hit.

A relentlessly entertaining romancer.

Buff gels into a surprisingly moving look at the machinations of the heart.

The film has an exhilarating tossed-off quality that characterized many of the most entertaining works of the French New Wave.
