Description: Stephy originally was a very lucky girl. She opened a sweets shop after graduating college with her longtime boyfriend Jun (it didn?t say the name of who is acting him). Stephy thought that after everything settled down, she would then marry Jun. But of course the good times never last long. One day Stephy met her old classmate Alice Zeng (Taiwanese actress, from Jay Chou?s Secret). Alice liked Jun?s hard working and nice personality, and completely not caring about Stehpy?s feelings; decided to take Jun for her own. Stephy not only lost the long time love of her life, but she also lost the sweet shop that she has worked so hard on. Leila is Stephy?s good friend. She has a long time boyfriend Terry. The pretty and attractive Leila would often time have some short relationships with other men while concealing all this from the introvert and slow Terry. It?s not that Leila doesn?t love Terry. She always thinks that Terry will never leave her. As for Leila, she doesn?t want to be someone who holds onto one single relationship. After breaking up with Jun, Stephy found a job as a make-up artist in the mall. Her boss Kuen (again, no actress name) suddenly announced her engagement. She invited everyone to out to celebrate. At the party, Stephy realized that her boss?s really young fianc? is very familiar. She recognized him as her old neighbor Alex Fong, but Alex keeps pretending that he doesn?t know Stephy. A month later, Kuen?s wedding was suddenly canceled. Stephy found out from coworkers that Kuen?s life savings were all stolen from the fianc? Alex, who also disappeared. Stephy unexpectedly met Alex on the streets. Alex already has a new target. He finds Stephy following him. Alex though Stephy was going to sue him, but never expected Stephy to have a request from him. She would like to use good money and hire him to cheat with Alice. Stephy promised that Alice will have to taste what it?s like to loose all your money and boyfriend. As an experienced liar, Alex successfully ?wooed? Alice. Watching Alice like someone else, Jun decided to make up with Stephy and asked for a new relationship. But the time has passed for Stephy. She has no more feelings for Jun because deep in her heart, she unknowingly fell in love with Alex. As for always having successful relationships, Leila finally felt tired and decided to set up a stable relationship with Terry. But Terry tells Leila that he wants to break up.

The 7 main characters in the story, all were excited in the game of love. But in the game of love, there are no rules. Just like this world, there is no strange love, just strange people.
A Twisted Love Story
Some reviews say that this movie was horrible but everyone is entitled for their own opinions. But i "THINK" the reason why they thought it was bad was because they don’t understand the story, and the point they are trying to make, or they did not like the ending.
If some of you guys are wondering this is actually a highly successful movie in Hong Kong if you wanna know why watch this movie even though you might think this movie is bad or continue on reading my review to understand why this very weird, sad, and shocking love story is a hit.
This movie shows some real life love stories and real life situations. Not everyone will get what they want and love stories don’t always end up happily ever after.
I find the storyline very realistic, dramatic, romantic and at some points shocking. But either way i love this movie a lot. This is not an ordinary love story it shows different perspective of love stories and how they cope with it. Some of the acting was not very good which lowered my rating.
The message of the story is true "In this world they are no strange love, only strange people". The ending is very twisted that is what i really liked about it. If the ending was they lived happily ever after then the end wont be memorable at all..
If i had a choice to pick which endings i would pick this one only because the ending spoke to me the most =).
