Love au Zen
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Derek Chiu.


A young stock broker drops out of life and moves to Lantau Island to study under a Zen Master, leaving his girlfriend of five years. His best friend is dumped at the altar by his girlfriend and joins him on the mountain. There, they try to sort out their lives. But no dice -- soon the girls show up and start annoying everyone. Finding happiness does not come easy for anyone. A well scripted and very warm, charming performance by Ko Hon-man as the head monk helped keep me entertained, but it was not enough to get me involved. I suspect fans of romance movies would fare much better.
