YesAsia Editorial Description

Multi-talented Hong Kong entertainment veteran Lawrence Cheng (He & She) returns to the director's chair after two decades in 2014's Break Up 100. Interested in examining contemporary romantic relationships, Cheng took on directing, producing and scripting duties for the film, which stars first-time collaborators Ekin Cheng (Horseplay) and Chrissie Chau (Mr. & Mrs. Player).

Sam (Ekin Cheng) and Barbara (Chrissie Chau) couldn't be more different. Sam is a man-child in his 40s who has yet to achieve anything of significance in life. Barbara is a proud and serious go-getter whose maturity belies her age. It's no wonder, then, that the couple has broken up 99 times during their eight-year relationship. The curious thing is, Sam and Barbara have made up and continued their relationship after each and every one of their breakups. The couple opens a café together and the business becomes unexpectedly successful after Sam comes up with the idea of allowing their customers to store their break-up memorabilia in the café, attracting a group of eccentric patrons including bakery owner Priscilla (Ivana Wong, Golden Chickensss). However, the couple's 100th breakup looms on the horizon as the pressures of success threaten to pull them apart, and this time, the breakup could very well be permanent.

Chrissie Chau can act
Directing his first film in over twenty years, Lawrence Cheng offers a slice-of-life Hong Kong story in the mild urban relationship drama Break Up 100. The film's protagonists embody stereotypical young urbanites: Chrissie Chau as Barbara, that demanding Hong Kong girl who's never satisfied with what's in front of her, and Ekin Cheng as Sam, that immature, pushover Hong Kong guy who lacks responsibility and foresight. The constantly bickering couple has broken up 99 times, but he always apologizes and they always make up. Together, Barbara and Sam open up a cafe which turns into an unexpected hit when he comes up with the idea to rent out shelves to store patrons' breakup mementos.

As typical of cafe movies, Break Up 100 creates a whimsical, romanticized urban setting in which quirky customers bring side stories, quirky staff add light diversions (or in this case, a cappella serenades by the four members of C AllStar), and a cup of coffee holds profound meaning. On the not so romanticized side is the romance between Barbara and Sam, a comfortable, stagnant relationship filled with constant arguing over work, money and responsibilities. They bristle at each other's flaws and know the other party won't change, but at the same time, they also understand that what they have with each other isn't bad at all and not something that can be easily given up. The push and pull between Barbara and Sam reaches a possible breaking point upon their 100th breakup.

When the protagonists' relationship nosedives, the film too suddenly goes from bright and loud to sulky and bittersweet. Neither parts of the story are outstanding, but both are effective enough in conveying contemporary relationship dilemmas. The film finely draws out the defeated realization of having to give up a part of oneself in order to make a relationship (and adulthood) work and the helpless anxiety of watching one's relationship wither – experiences that may hit close to home for some audiences.

Ekin Cheng is fine playing some variation of himself, the playful, laidback kidult with equally immature buddies, but doesn't bring anything new to the table. Instead, the greatest revelation of Break Up 100 is actually Chrissie Chau. She who once represented the ubiquitous apex of Hong Kong's sexy pseudo-model trend a few years ago has also outpaced most of her contemporaries with steady acting work, often in leading roles. Chrissie isn't exactly known for being a thespian and her prolific filmography yields mostly B-movie fare, but she has shown herself to be solid and likeable when given solid material to work with, such as her supporting turns in Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons and The Killer Who Never Kills. Before watching the film, I had doubts about Chrissie's lead casting opposite Ekin Cheng, but I came out of it very pleasantly surprised with her performance.

The character of Barbara is both a validation and a vindication of the demanding Hong Kong girl stereotype. She's hard to deal with but undeniably hardworking, calculating but goodhearted, stubborn but supportive, short-tempered but forgiving. Chrissie plays this normal, practical, world-weary woman with the right amount of self-righteous pushiness and without any pretensions of cuteness or sexiness. Unexpectedly, Chrissie makes a pretty convincing everywoman and her performance contributes greatly towards Break Up 100's success as a small but sincere relationship drama.
