Itchy Heart (2004)
Reviewed by: j.crawford on 2006-06-20
Summary: stylish, beautifully realized.
This stylish romantic comedy is almost too good. Lau Ching-Wan is his usual lovable self, playing a married guy who is restless in his marriage. Loosely based on the Hollywood classic The Seven-Year Itch, the screenplay by director Matt Chow Hoi-Kwong is beautifully realized by co-producers Joe Ma Wai-Ho and Ivy Kong Yuk-Yee.

Joining Lau with a couple of very pleasant performances are the beautiful Carina Lau Ka-Ling and the exciting Cherrie Ying Choi-Yi. If I have to say something negative about the film [and I don’t have to, you know?], I’d say that there is too much Andy On Chi-Kit. It’s a tribute to the strength of the material that even he made me laugh, and not in the wrong places, either!
