Love stories a popular Valentine’s theme

Many producers have taken lessons from Zhou Yu's Express, a love story that was screened around Valentine's Day last year and achieved good box-office results. That is why Barber in Love starring Zhou Xun has been screening in Shenzhen cinemas since Tuesday, and Leaving Me Loving You starring Faye Wong and Leon Lai will be on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day.

Taking advantage of Valentine’s Day to premiere films of love stories reflects no more than the producers’ intention to make money. Although Barber in Love and Leaving Me Loving You have different subject matter and styles, the result is the same in pursuing the occasion.

There are also some foreign films taking advantage. One of them is Mona Lisa Smile featuring such big names as Julia Roberts, Julia Stiles and Kirsten Dunst. It started screening Wednesday in Shenzhen. Although the film is not about romance, it is a good one for lovers to watch together, given that it features many famous beautiful actresses.

The three films, a collection of famous Chinese and foreign stars, are supposed to be ideal choices for the Valentine’s Day season.

On Feb. 14, the New South Movie City in Shenzhen City will hold a theme event for lovers called “Valentine’s Night of Films.” The audience will not only be given roses but there will also be discounts on tickets.
