"Sweet Loaf" - a review by timchuma

Kim To receives a letter one day from her boyfriend (Gala) in Paris saying he has written her 99 letters and she still hasn't answered, so he will not write anymore.

Just before this she shows her friend Chanty a flat upstairs for rent, which he then moves into with his Uncle Jet (not Jet Li).

While cleaning up, Uncle Jet finds a box in the wardrobe that has 99 letters in it with all the stamps ripped off (the previous tenant's child has stolen them). As he is the curious type, he reads all of them and decides to try and get Kim To reunited with her boyfriend when he comes back to Hong Kong.

After doing some investigations, Uncle Jet decides to buy the bakery opposite from where he lives because he knows Kim To and Gala used to work in a bakery together.

The bakery is a success, mainly due to the popularity of their plain loaf (which is face-tested for softness), and the local media coverage catches the attention of the now returned Gala.

Gala comes into the shop to ask for Kim To, but Uncle Jet doesn't want him to see her. His plan has succeeded, but he is having second thoughts about it because he loves Kim To...

What we have here is a likeable romantic comedy with solid performances all round. This is not surprising as it was released for Valentine's Day. An ideal chick flick or something to take your partner to.

timchuma gives this movie 7 out of 10.
