Writer-director Xue Xiaolu follows up the hit 2013 Chinese-Hong Kong romance, Finding Mr Right, with the sequel, Book of Love. This instalment also reunites lead actors Tang Wei and Wu Xiubo in a new storyline, where two strangers spark up an unexpected romance through handwritten letters. Casino publicist Jiao Ye (Tang Wei) and real estate agent Daniel Luo (Wu Xiubo) lead unrelated lives in Macau and Los Angeles, until an old book titled 84 Charing Cross Road brings them serendipitously together. Blaming a sudden wave of misfortune on their copy of the book, both Jiao and Daniel attempt to rid themselves of it by mailing it to the address in the title. Little do they suspect that they’ve just entrusted their love lives to the current resident — an elderly matchmaker named Mr Thomas. As much a commentary on modern economic trends and social isolation as it is a romance, Book of Love illustrates China’s growing love for romantic comedy.
This film is being organised by the China Cultural Centre, and forms part of the Happy Chinese New Year in Valletta 2018 series.
