Para Para Sakura (2001)

If you like these Hong Kong romantic comedies that have become so popular in the post-Handover era, this is a must-see film. Light, sweet, non-offensive stuff that puts a happy face on life, this movie is about nothing more than capturing a piece of the Japanese film market.

Aaron Kwok Fu-Sing and the mighty Cecilia Cheung Pak-Chi star in a film directed by Jingle Ma Choh-Shing who served as his own cinematographer. Needless to say, the movie is beautifully shot. Kwok dances quite well and Ms. Cheung carries the show. It's good for a rainy day viewing.
