Romancing In Thin Air is a first-class romantic film. The screenplay by, Jevons Au Man-Kit, Ka-Fai Wai and Nai-Hoi Yau seduces the audience by patiently building its plot using classical comedy characters mix with dramatic scenes. The cast includes a handsome leading man, Louis Koo, and a classic leading lady, Sammi Cheng.
The director Jonnie To has created a film with balance. The story shows us that everyone is in need of real friends and sincere support. The picturesque cinematography exemplifies the austere yet beautiful Yunnan scenery. Romancing In Thin Air creates a real scenario so that the audience can accept the unfolding events. Guy Zerafa's beautifully melancholic score dictates a pace for the film the way Stephen Sondheim scores enhance dialogue and plot.
