BREAK UP CLUB features mainstream Chinese actor Jaycee Chan and popular TVB actress and singer Fiona Sit in a romantic, bitter sweet comedy.
For my last evening in dreamy San Francisco, I decided to expose myself to as many artists’ work as possible. I went to see TAINTED LOVE and SILENT RITUALS AND HOVERING PROXIES back-to-back – two collections of shorts offered by SFIAAFF.
The weekend wrap up of the 29th annual SFIAAFF in San Jose had a great turn=out despite the rainy weather overhead! Many films were screened in the South Bay at Camera 12 theaters such as MADE IN INDIA, WHEN LOVE COMES, SURROGATE VALENTINE and BREAK UP CLUB.
A week has passed since the opening night of SFIAAFF, and I couldn’t help but recollect a few wonderful memories that night. SFIAAFF’s opening night exuded grandeur.
First things first: I am a hopeless romantic. I swoon at musicals, clutch my heart during quirky rom-coms, break out the tissues during tear-jerking scenes. That said, I accidentally-on-purpose chose to back-to-back, love-themed screenings: TAINTED LOVE (the cleverly named shorts program) and SURROGATE VALENTINE (the closing night film).
Do you enjoy humorous, tear jerking chick flicks? Are you looking for the perfect date movie? If so, don’t miss out on the BREAK UP CLUB.
Saturday, as the second full day of programming for SFIAAFF, was full of stimulation and inspiration. Notably, the UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL panel.
After a full weekend of programs from morning to night, only one word can describe the experience – Awesome!
