Movie synopsis
Kit leaves Hong Kong for Paris with a broken heart, to start a new page of life and venturing into the wine business. Through real estate agent, Lau Chung, he finds a shared apartment with a weird tenant, Man, a desperate artist going through a bad breakup.
Man hates men after a devastating breakup, in order to get along with Man under the same roof, Kit pretends to be gay. At the beginning, Man’s eccentric and insane behavior gets onto Kit’s nerve, but after knowing Man’s heartbreaking past by chance, Kit decides to stay and teaches Man how to get over a failed relationship, as this is exactly what he has encountered in the past. Kit also helps Man ignites her passion for drawing, which allows Man to regain her confidence and balance in life. Soon, the two get closer and falls for each other.

One day, Man bumps into her ex-fiancé Fai, she is shocked but surprised that she no longer felt any pain – she has really overcome the past relationship with the help and support of Kit. Meanwhile, when Kit and Man are going to move a step forward, Kit’s ex-girlfriend comes to Paris causing misunderstandings which takes a toll on the relationship.

怀抱着破碎的心和不堪回首的过去,林俊杰(古天乐饰)毅然离开香港前往法国巴黎开展新生活,并推销红酒生意。透过房屋仲介刘聪(方中信饰),俊杰找到了理想的公寓,然而这公寓却附带了一位奇怪的分租户-失恋艺术家丁晓敏(郭采洁饰)。一段微妙的「同居」生活,就这样在浪漫之都展开。

房东告知俊杰,晓敏因失恋而变得一厥不振,并极度厌恶男性,为了与晓敏在同一屋檐下可以和平共处,俊杰只好装作同性恋者,以消除晓敏的戒心。岂料,晓敏行为怪异,俊杰忍无可忍,坚决摆脱晓敏,此时,却在一次偶然的机会,俊杰窥探了晓敏内心的一隅。原来,晓敏于婚前被自己认定是灵魂伴侣的徐晖(徐正曦饰)抛弃,过去为徐晖几乎牺牲一切的晓敏,甚至放弃了成为画家的理想。在爱情和事业皆失意下,对生活失去了动力,对爱情失去了希望。俊杰在晓敏身上看到自己的影子,决定留下来扶持这位情路上的同路人。

俊杰开始重整晓敏颓废的生活,让她放下过去的包袱,并重燃对艺术的热情。得到俊杰的鼓励,晓敏也逐渐走出失恋的阴霾,生活慢慢重回正轨,两人的关系亦不知不觉间发生变化,成为无所不谈的「姊妹」知己。虽然二人渐行渐近…

正当晓敏寻回人生的方向,重新开始在蒙马特广场摆画摊时,却重遇当日舍她而去的徐晖。与未婚妻同行的徐晖,面上挂着的是她从未见过的幸福笑容。晓敏终于明白,爱并不等于拥有,在俊杰的开导下她真正放下了,让徐晖留在昔日的回忆中,慢慢被淡忘。

此时,俊杰的前女友赵雨晴(刘梓妍饰)竟来到巴黎,希望俊杰跟她回香港再续前缘一个又一个无从解释的误会,把二人愈拉愈远…

到底二人的命运注定是擦身而过,还是开花结果﹖
携手「酿造」的友谊又能否引领二人再次相遇﹖

Review
Never been to Europe, and I was told by friends that Paris is actually quite a ‘gloomy country’, but this show… really makes me fall in love with Paris… The scenery is really OMG-ly pretty…

The ending is quite expected for a romance happening in such a beautiful place but there are a few reasons why I love this show:
– Beautiful scenery (gosh! I am hopeless with the blue sky and white clouds)
– Motivating quotes (especially healing for those who are hurt in a relationship)
– Loads of funny scenes
– Little twist here and there (remind us everything will have different side of story, we shall not see things purely by it’s surface)…

电影的开场轻松惹笑,本以为只是另一出单纯俊男美女搞浪漫的喜剧,可是看完了却有小惊喜。美丽的风景不说,古天乐在电影里拼命向郭采洁灌心灵鸡汤 – 超爱这些语录。。。觉得有好些都是真言,想必对现在单身/受伤的观众,应该挺疗伤的。

片中也有好几段小插曲,都有出乎我意外的“内情”,也提醒了观众,有时看东西真的不能只看表面。个人觉得这出电影挺值得观看的~

Some quotes from the movie 经典电影对白

短短一生中,我们的痛苦,来源于爱,我们的幸福,也来源于爱
有的人,甘愿守候所爱,有的人,不停寻爱
不能逆流而上的人,就是下流
人生最幸福的就是遇见你
痛的不是分手,而是忘不了的过去。
伤害你的人不是别人,只有你自己
有缘无份.何必勉强 曾经拥抱.不枉此爱
如果你相信缘分,就一定会遇到
人生,最重要的是学会享受痛苦,在自己最痛苦的时候,给自己放放假,歇完再说
没有结局的感情,总要结束。不能拥有的人,总会忘记。
人生没有永远的伤痛,再深的痛,时间会让它痊愈
不管多么深刻的伤痛 只需七年都会痊愈 因为七年的时间 可以把我们全身的细胞更换一遍 一个旧细胞都没有 所以不开心 都会忘的干干净净
