Love Off the Cuff by Pang Ho-Cheung – China, Hong Kong | 2017
In 2010, Jimmy and Cherie fell in love in the back alleys of Hong Kong. In 2012, they each found a new love in a new city, but they ultimately chose to stay together. In 2017, Cherie and Jimmy will brave the stormy seas and save their relationship. Can Cherie and Jimmy overcome their seven-year itch? The path to finding out the answer is filled with laughs and tears.
Pang Ho-Cheung comment about the movie “Many people are very interested in the relationship between Cherie and Jimmy. In fact, their love story has not only spanned seven years, but also spanned different regions – Hong Kong, Beijing, and now Taiwan. I always think that’s a good relationship can cross borders and stand the test of time”.
