Shu Qi (If You Are The One) and Liu Ye (Lan Yu) join hands for the heart-rending love story from blockbuster director Andrew Lau (Look For A Star), which is set to be another trophy-magnet for the award-winning trio. The beautifully lensed A Beautiful Life follows a Hong Kong woman who struggles to make a living in Beijing, and the man she falls head over heels in love with no matter what the hands of fate bring them. Thanks to the powerful performances of the leads and the credible chemistry between them, Andrew Lau has an easier time demonstrating with this film that he is equally adept at making a bittersweet romantic tearjerker. It should be noted, however, that fine acting isn't limited to the central pair, as co-stars like Olympic diver-turned-actor Tian Liang, starlet Feng Danying, and the always-reliable Anthony Wong also give scene-stealing turns in supporting roles.
Smart and beautiful, Li Peiru (Shu Qi) is trying to make some big bucks in Beijing for her family in Hong Kong. She works hard for a real estate agency, yet a hopeless affair with her married boss leaves her badly broken. After a drunken encounter with honest policeman Fang Zhendong (Liu Ye), she begins to enjoy his company whenever she feels down and lonely. Smitten with this broken-hearted girl, Zhendong is always there for her, giving her financial and emotional support without asking for anything in return. Still, life is always a series of setbacks for Peiru, and when her own business is doomed to failure, she decides to give up everything and drift back to Hong Kong. It is only then that she realizes Zhendong is all that she needs, but can true love prevail in the face of the cruelty of life?
