French romantic comedy by Fabrice Roger-Lacan, with English surtitles.
She’s a shrink. He sells yoghurts. They’re neighbors on the same floor, the best of enemies and, like millions of singles lost in the city, secretly exploring internet dating sites in search of love – for someone the exact opposite of the unbearable person living next door. Thanks to the magic of compatibility tests they both find a soul mate and can’t resist the pleasure of telling each other – for another chance to have an argument. But is it the last?

HK Theatre Association Limited
HKTA conducts an array of instructional training workshops in a wide variety of modern creative genres including: acting, dancing, vocal training and writing. Courses will be conducted in a variety of languages including English, and French to all, Adults, Teenagers and Kids.
The Association helps actors to gain control over their work, teaching them to rely on their own instincts, imagination and choices. Our scene study and improv classes produce confident actors who bring an original voice to every production.In fact, the most distinctive thing about one of our members is how different each one is. We train actors to speak in their own artistic voice—producing characters that are rich and layered. They become the artist they always wanted to be. Theater, television and film are all collaborative mediums, so an actor must work well with other actors, directors, casting directors and many more. Our technique trains them to do just that! That’s why we love to work with HKTA actors-students!
