Former lovers Jimmy and Cherie discover that getting over each other isn't as easy as they thought in this sequel to the romantic comedy Love in a Puff. Six months after their whirlwind romance, Jimmy... read more read more... and Cherie are ready to move on. For Jimmy, that means moving to Beijing for a new career opportunity. As Jimmy begins dating pretty flight attendant Shang You-you, Cherie arrives in Beijing to open a new business and catches the eye of Malaysian Chinese I.T. specialist Sam. But after communicating in a series of texts, Jimmy and Cherie reconnect. Despite feeling that the spark is still there, however, their differences are still as pronounced as ever. As their current significant others begin to sense that something isn't right, Jimmy and Cherie can't help but feeling like maybe they were too quick to call it quits, and that perhaps there's still hope for a future together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Anita Li, Toronto Star

While it's not a game-changer, writer-director Ho-Cheung Pang's sharp rom-com, Love in the Buff, is a realistic portrayal of modern love in all its complexity and pain. Full Review

Andy Webster, New York Times

A romantic comedy that is as interesting for its glimpse into contemporary urban China as it is for the charisma of its leads. Full Review

V.A. Musetto

V.A. Musetto, New York Post

Unlikely to resonate with Western audiences, who have more than enough sentimental English-language romantic comedies to keep themselves occupied. Full Review

Maggie Lee

Maggie Lee, Variety

A refreshingly authentic romantic comedy about the tradeoffs people must make in their relationships, careers and lifestyles. Full Review

Deborah Young

Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

Modern love shifts from Hong Kong to Beijing in the successful sequel to Love in a Puff, a natural, light and convincing rom com very similar to the original Hong Kong hit. Full Review

Ernest Hardy, Village Voice

Buff gels into a surprisingly moving look at the machinations of the heart. Full Review

Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International

Winning romantic comedy of Hong Kong lovers unable to commit once they move to Beijing. Strong sequel to the cult favorite Love in a Puff. Full Review

Edmund Lee

Edmund Lee, Screen International

A relentlessly entertaining romancer. Full Review

Chuck Bowen

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

The film has an exhilarating tossed-off quality that characterized many of the most entertaining works of the French New Wave. Full Review
