A theatre usher looks everywhere for love only to find it in a library book. A cop chases a killer only to wind up at the end of her own gunâ€¦And a pulp-romance writer confuses fact with fiction and learns that true love comes only after a great loss. The stories that flow from the desire to find true love lead us to various stories that come across time, space and consequences, demonstrating with warmth and honesty that the lines between fact and fiction often are blurred. Whether cynic or romantic, Love Story will touch everyone with its insightful charm.
Love Story is a film from the FOCUS: First Cuts Project involving new and upcoming directors from across China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.
The project featured 6 features films – including The Shoe Fairy (Robin Lee), Iâ€™ll Call You (Lam Tze Chung), Rain Dogs (Ho Yuhang), Crazy Stone (Ning Hao) and My Mother is a Belly Dancer (Lee Kung Lok and Wong Ching Po) – all of which are flourishing in both festivals and Asian markets.
