YesAsia Editorial Description

Miriam Yeung and Richie Jen star in the costume romantic comedy Elixir Of Love directed by Riley Yip. There was once an emperor with many princes but no princesses. After receiving the happy news that he finally is the father of a princess, he is overjoyed. However, his pleasure does not last long for he discovers that his daughter was born with a strange disease which causes her to have an onerous odor. Full of despair, he orders that the right man has to be found to cure his poor child.

Richie Jen plays a man who believes that he has the right perfume to please the emperor, but first he has to test his fragrant creation. As luck would have it, he stumbles into a fishy-smelling fish-selling maiden (Miriam Yeung), who totally changes all his plans...

  古代某小國皇帝有了十多位皇子後,在千萬望的期待下,皇后終於替他生下一位元元公主(楊千樺飾),皇帝萬分驚喜感動,剛想宣布舉國同歡時,又傳來公主玉體天生會發出一股難聞的『臭味』。無人願意接近小公主,御醫、皇帝和皇后也束手無策,只能默默等待奇蹟出現……
  Taiwanese Heartthrob Richie Ren And Hong Kong Pop singer/ comedian Miriam Yeung (Love Undercover) star in this costume comedy set in 11th Century China. Amateur aromatherapist Kai (Ren) decides to try his luck by answering the Emperor's call to cure the princess body odor problems. Given three months to come up with the ultimate treatment, Kai must find someone who is equally smelly as the princess, so that he may test the elixir. He soon finds the perfect lab rat in Heung (Yeung), a pungent smelling fishmonger. As the two of them roam the country to collect the rarest flowers for the elixir, they also draw closer to one another.

Professional Review of "Elixir Of Love (DVD) (DTS) (Hong Kong Version)"

March 26, 2007

Handsome boys and beautiful girls no longer make the formula of love stories! This was first shown in the DreamWorks production Shrek featuring the fearsome green ogre and beauty-at-daytime-but-ogre-at night Princess Fiona. Director Ye Jin-Hong brings you another unorthodox love story between an aroma-therapeutist and a princess with severe body odor.

Stories about the sense of smell are actually not new. German playwright Patrick Suskind's 1985 novel titled Perfume centers on a weirdo who was born with no body odor but an extraordinary sense of smell. Ye Jin-hong seems to have a preference for such a world built upon smells. After his 2000 production Lavender, Ye in 2004 brings you to ancient China and lets you experience love with your nose in Elixir of Love.

Elixir of Love features a princess (Miriam Yeung) who was born with a disgusting body odor which is incurable. A poor man (Richie Jen) who is good at aroma-therapy enters the scenario in response to a request for a healing elixir made by the emperor. Afterwards Richie meets the princess disguised as fish seller and tests his special perfume. The story then goes on with these two young people having their ups and downs in the medicine-hunting trip with some villains devastating their plan in the middle. Of course, a love story ends with a perfect ending.

As unsurprising as the plot may seem, Elixir of Love stands out with its particular "smelly" choice. Born to have it all, the princess however loses everything from friends to lovers just because of her body odor. But true love always wins. At last the aroma-therapeutist is willing to give up his rich award and comes back to his true love despite her smelling like a fish. It can be seen that the director has put a lot of effort to create a touching love story with twists and turns. Funny scenes are available. For example, the fish girl has to experience all kinds of special treatments to get rid of her smell. However, chemistry is hardly found between Miriam Yeung and Richie Yen. They seem to have ignored each other’s presence in spite of portraying a couple in this movie. Credits therefore can only go to the fun part but not the romance. Kenny Bee Chung playing the hideous bad guy however gives an impressive performance. The royal doctor he plays that is willing to sacrifice his sense of smell and post for the sake of love does touch the heart of the audience.

A number of comedies in Hong Kong, sadly, can only be commented as nonsense with those stupid jokes which have no relevance to the movies themselves. The director of Elixir of Love worked hard to avoid making the same mistake and produced a movie with a series of funny scenes which go smoothly with the movie.

Scenes like the one that focus on efforts the aroma-therapeutist makes to cure body odor and that in which the fish girl makes use of her disadvantage to scare off the villains are quite hilarious.

Most of the applause must definitely go to the art director in this movie. The best clothes are certainly worn by the leading characters such as the Missoni knitwear of Richie and the Issey Miyake gossamer costumes of Miriam. Attention to details is also found on the glamorous outfits worn by the royal family and officers. The club girls are taken good care of too and they are all dressed up with colorful garments. The commoners at the market are never neglected. Their torn clothes are carefully designated as well! On top of that the props and settings are exquisitely carved. Everything matches perfectly with the magnificent views of the natural plateau in the background. It seems as if the director did not only pay attention to the smell but also the art work.

Miracle In Love... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Elixir of Love is a great beautiful film. The costumes/scenery in this film are gorgeous and colorful. The characters in the film are lovely and the music is beautiful,too(especially the one Miriam Yeung/Richie Jen sing together). Beautiful Miriam Yeung and handsome Richie Jen are look great as two lovely doves in a peartree as they team up. And best of all...they lived happily ever after!

Really poor film Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10

Liking the actors is just not enough to buy this movie, it's just so bad, I feel like I have wasted money & time. Miriam & Richie just don't have anything interesting or funny to say. The ending is clear from the start but the journey towards it just drags. This is striaght to video stuff.

Cool Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The production of this movie is pretty amazing..the sceneries, costume, and characters are entertaining. Richie's Cantonese accent could be hilarious at times, but still understandable. Good effort. This movie's fun to watch.
