Chinese title XI HUAN NI... [I Like You But...]
starring: Takeshi Kaneshiro · Zhou Dong-Yu · Sun Yi-Zhou · Ming Xi · Chang
an obsessive CEO of a hotel company meets a struggling young chef.
They fall in love but their quirky personalities challenge the relationship.
diametrically opposite individuals - CEO Lu Jin and junior sous-chef Gu
Sheng-nan - start off butting heads but end up falling in love in this
huge Chinese blockbuster hit. On one hand, he is the elite boss of the
multi-billion VN Group, a company that evaluates hotels before acquisition
into their prestigious franchise; on the other hand, she is a 'frivolous'
assistant chef at the boutique Rosebud hotel in Shanghai. Everything about
them seems to oppose ANY chance of a relationship.
Not only are they from complete different status and economic levels,
but their very personalities are instantly at odds with each other. Of
course, therein lies the utter attraction of the film. Based on the book
A Long Time Coming by Lan Bai, here is a superb character-driven
rom-com that will charm even the most jaded movie fan. This is
China's top grossing movie of 2017, deservedly so.
