Perhaps Love (2006)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Let the Music Play

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The 2006 San Francisco International Film Festival Opening Night feature comes from the underrated Hong Kong director Peter Ho-Sun Chan, best known for his heartbreaking romances (Comrades, Almost a Love Story, The Love Letter). His sometimes overwhelming new film, Perhaps Love depicts a love triangle between a director, an actor and an actress, whose careers and relationships have come to a head while making a new musical. With a touch of All That Jazz (1979), the film deliriously skims from past to present, fact to fantasy, all while keeping its heartstrings intact.
