The Twins singing duo of Charlene Choi and Gillian Chung shot into prominence as Hong Kong’s top pop culture sensations in 2002.

After separate steps into cinema with films Heroes In Love, Funeral March and U-Man, the pair took their first screen roles together to lead Joe Ma’s Summer Breeze of Love. The energetic pair play Kiki (Choi) and Kammy (Chung); best friends falling in love for the first time over the summer break. Kiki gets swept up by playboy Fung (Tsui Tien-you) and also catches the attention of Kammy’s boring brother Hapocean (Roy Chow). Kammy at the same time falls for Danny (Dave Wang), a mother’s boy old enough to be her dad. While both girls fall in love instantly, getting the guys to actually respond is another matter altogether. The latest in a line of modern-day youth films from director Joe Ma, Summer Breeze of Love focuses on the excitement, missteps and false starts of young love, which comes along remarkably quickly for the two leads. With background info generally scant except with the Kiki character, who draws on growing-up experience to offer marriage guidance, the filmmakers waste little screen time in keeping younger audiences entertained. Scenes are filled with vibrant colour, from the girls’ clothes to their hip home decors, and the picture gets enlivened with such frivolities as an art film spoof, a bizarre costume dream and silly cameo appearances by the director as “Handsome”. Performances are cheerful and enthusiastic across the board, especially from Chung and Choi who appear relaxed on screen together. Adding to the film’s teen credibility is the presence of boy band Shine – Wong You-nam and Tsui Tien-you – in roles of varying prominence. Dave Wang and newcomer Roy Chow meanwhile develop into the film’s more interesting characters, both starting from fish-out-of-water roles.
