L For Love, L For Lies / Ngor dik dzui oi

2008 Hong Kong movie starring Alex Fong Lik-Sun, Stephy Tang, and Alice Tzeng. It's about what the title implies: love and betrayal. The girl is cutesy and runs a small shop with her fiance, and then a snobby betch rolls into town, stealing the boyfriend quite effortlessly. The result is the 'she' ends up losing the shop and her fiance while her life continues to spiral downward. She's kind-hearted, though, yet when she meets up with a con-artist, her only thought is to hire him to do to the interloper what the interloper's done to her, and that is to destroy the interlopers life. The movie ran seamlessly, remained intriguing throughout, and though the ending was somewhat predictable, it still came as a bit of a shocker. I liked it for the 'escapism' aspect that helped to transport me into another realm for a few hours.
