Surprisingly, I found director Matt Chow's ITCHY HEART to be quite entertaining. In the film, Lau Ching-Wan plays a married man who runs into a former lover (played by Carina Lau) and a free-spirited young beauty (played by Cherrie Ying) while is wife is out of town with a girlfriend. Feeling a bad case of the seven year itch, he tentatively rekindles one relationship and embarks on another. The results are at times funny, at times sad, at times romantic, and at times silly. As is the case with most Hong Kong romantic comedies, the cast is the main determinant of whether or not you will find the film to be satisfying. As such, if you are fans of Lau Ching-Wan, Carina Lau, or Cherrie Ying, you will probably like this film. Andy On's character is too much of a doofus to really take seriously.
I, being a fan of the aforementioned Lau's, rated it a 7 out of 10.
