Lover’s Discourse is an irresistible four-part film about an eclectic group of seemingly unconnected characters in Hong Kong who are fixated on love. Their stories become intertwined as directors Tsang and Wan move through various stages of love, betrayal, and redemption.
Hong Kong star Eason Chan and Canadian actress Karena Lam play former lovers who meet on a crowded Causeway Bay corner. Over drinks, their musings reveal an endearing and almost guilt-free intimacy.
A quirky laundromat worker (singer Kay Tse) has a crush on one of her customers (Eddie Peng). After she salvages items from the clothes he drops off for cleaning, she indulges in whimsical fantasies about him.
A school boy is obsessed with his friend’s mother (singer Kit Chan). His intense lingering gazes are dismissed by her at first, until he discovers her husband (Eric Tsang) is fooling around.
Two individuals (Jacky Heung and Mavis Fan) join forces to tail their romantic partners when they suspect them of being unfaithful.
