This directorial debut of the acclaimed lyricist Calvin Poon Yuen-leung brings together two music icons of the 1980s: a brief appearance of Beyond and the musical score of Tat Ming Pair. The vocalist of the latter group, Anthony Wong Yiu-ming, plays Sing, who wishes to break into showbiz. He is in love with Icy (Loletta Lee) who similarly aspires to have a career in music. If it is their common ambition that draws them together, its achievement, sadly, risks tearing the couple apart. Kiss Me Goodbye shows us refreshing individuals who are passionate, free, and open to chances. Like La La Land (2016), it dramatises a key condition of love in modern society: the tension between career and relationship, between what we desire and what we are willing to sacrifice.
