Poster for Love in a Puff

Love in a Puff has little hope to be screened in the mainland due to its Cat.III rating. It has a limited release in Hong Kong. Director Pang Ho-Cheung said that he did not originally expect a Cat.III rating. On his upcoming Dream Home, there are a large number of bloody scenes and mutilated bodies, so it might also face difficulty to introduce in the mainland. Said Pang, he did not intentionally give up the mainland market but just wants to make his own films. (Sina)

Why did I think Triple Tap was coming out sooner?

I like the title of A Simple Noodle Story that the film apparently has in Taiwan.

And the Love in a Puff poster is now making me want to see the film.

Great stuff from you as always!

The orignal reported date for Triple Tap was May 1. No explanation for the change, the current article only calls it was a 'rumored' date.

It's confusing, the title has seemingly changed so often but I can only remember A Simple Noodle Story because I have such a simple noodle. :)
