General info
Original title: Heung Joh Chow Heung Yau Chow (向左走向右走)
Year: 2003
Genre: Romance
IMDB Rating: 6.6 880 votes

Life is full of surprises;
even two parallel lines may one day meet.

John Liu (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is an aspiring violinist and Eve Choi (Gigi Leung) is a professional translator whose true passion is translating love poems. They live parallel lives and appear to be perfect for each other, but somehow fate seems to keep them apart. Living in different units of the same apartment building and separated by one thin wall, they never meet, because when they leave, one turns left, and one turns right.
  • The story is based on one of the best-selling illustrated storybooks in Asia 'A Chance Of Sunshine' by Jimmy Liao.

(overall rating: 3.6 out of 5 based on 4 reviews)
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews/turn_left_turn_right.htm
«The film works overtime to keep its star-crossed lovers apart, so eventually one will have to wonder: how will they get these two together? Sooner or later it becomes just too silly for all of this to keep going on, and the fact that it continues to amuse even after it starts to get old shows that Johnnie To knows how to do something.»
KFCCinema.com, by Disi Hu - 4/5 source: http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/drama/turnleftturnright/turnleftturnright.html
« Johnny To and Wai Ka-Fai are good at shooting movie about fate of this kind. Comparing to their other recent movies such as PTU and Running on Karma, this movie has more relaxed and funny elements but less heavy feeling. »
The Illuminated Lantern, by Peter Nepstad - 2/4 source: http://www.illuminatedlantern.com/cinema/review/archives/turn_left_tur~~~ght.php
«Using the comic as a guide, To has created a warm, visually pleasing space in which the two would-be lovers play out their fate. The world they inhabit is as beautiful as they are (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Gigi Leung; surely two of the most attractive actors around); though all is tinged in sorrow.»
movie*pie, by Linda - 6/8 source: http://www.moviepie.com/component/content/article/3-film-festivals/837~~~au-chow
«Turn Left Turn Right skirts very close to getting completely schmaltzy. I don't think I've ever seen two leads look so wistful and forlorn for such a huge chunk of a film. Cheesy pop ballads swell in the soundtrack, and they furrow their brows in distress and sadness.»
So Good..., by Kenneth Brorsson source: http://www.sogoodreviews.com/reviews/turnleftturnright.htm
«Because fate deals you a wonderful set of cards at times that means you have to perform change in order to further yourself and Turn Left Turn Right indeed argues that this flinging about of the emotions of the audience is very healthy. Plus, it's engaging to the full, old fashioned, mixed up in a risky but ultimately totally pleasurable manner that has now turned around a die hard hater of any Milkyway output not dealing in darkness. »
