A romance split -- appropriately enough -- into 12 sections, Aubrey Lam's 12 Ye examines the vicissitudes of the relationship between Jeannie (Cecilia Cheung), a flight attendant, and Alan (Eason Chan), a materialistic business man. The two meet on Jeannie's birthday after she has a fight with her boyfriend; Alan takes her home and what follows is a year spent exploring the ups and downs of love, "he-said-she-said" politics, and basic human needs. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

Cecilia Cheung and Candy Lo turn in very genuine performances in one of their better movies. The storyline showcases a realistic portrayal of how modern day relationships are unexpectedly ended and started. Being led to believe that her boyfriend is cheating on her, Jeannie dumps her boyfriend and takes up with one of her girlfriend's ex-boyfriend. Alan initially pursues Jeannie, but over time, begins to treat her poorly. Jeannie responds by trying to be a more involved girlfriend. The relationship rapidly reaches the breaking point when both express how unhappy they are. The subtitles contained minor grammatical and spelling errors, but not enough to take away from enjoying the movie. The audio defaults to Dolby Digital 5.1 but came across as stereo. As for extras, there's a trailer for the movie, a "Stars' Files" option containing filmographies for Cecilia Cheung and Nicola Cheung and trailers for two other movies. Recommended.
