Johnnie To's Yesterday Once More is sold as a romcom, but since the two stars - Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng - are also playing jewel thieves, we're not THAT far from To's usual material. The story: A thieving couple breaks up over sharing their loot, and a couple years later, get back together when their scores align, as the woman tries to figure out just why the man left her. It's a relationship played out with schemes and cons, and that's fun and interesting, but despite Lau and Cheng apparently having been coupled a number of times on screen in more standard fare, there's something bemusedly removed about them that short-circuits the necessary chemistry. As a heist picture, it's amusing. As a romance, I don't think we care for these two to get back together again.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
