Title: SOPHIE's REVENGE.
Chinese/ Korean Movie.
Genre: Comedy, Romance.
Starring: Ziyi Zhang, Ji-seob So & Peter Ho.
Comic book artist Sophie (Zhang Ziyi) is a sweet and carefree girl brimming with creativity. She and her handsome surgeon boyfriend of two years, Jeff (So Ji-sub), are the perfect couple. After his marriage proposal to her in front of her family and all of her friends, Sophie is the happiest person in the world.
One day, Jeff meets a famous movie star, Joanna (Fan Bingbing), during a surgical procedure. Immediately afterwards, he breaks up with Sophie.
Devastated, Sophie takes to bed. She is unable to face anyone, especially her mother who had been planning the wedding. Sophie decides to cover up the break-up, with only her 2 best friends, Lucy (Ruby Lin) and Lily (Yao Chen) knowing the truth. She comes up with a master plan : she will use the remaining two months before the wedding date to do whatever it takes to get Jeff back.
She also plans to publish her many strategies in her new comic book. She wants to show women everywhere how to use a 'scientific' approach to win love back. Sophie's first strategy of "Generosity and Forgiveness" does not go well. At a Halloween party, hosted by Gordon (Peter Ho), a photographer, she drowns her sorrows in alcohol. She stumbles upon a photo of Gordon and Joanna together which immediately gives her the idea of forming an alliance with him. Gordon agrees to become Sophie's partner and her guest for revenge becomes a roller coaster of comedic turns and twists. Together they create a duo filled with surprises and adventures. But there seems more to meet the eye with their relationship.
Will Sophie win her man back? Is revenge all that it's made out to be? Is it madness or is it love? Sometimes love can be found in the most unlikely places.
It was a cute revenge! With a cute lovestory at the end :)
