All About Love (得閒炒飯) is a 2010 Hong Kong film directed by Ann Hui. The plot concerns two women who had been lovers in the past and re-meet in a counseling session for expectant mothers. In an interview, Hui said that a film about women lovers is difficult to fund in Hong Kong because of reliance on the Chinese market, which bans same-sex relationships.[1]

"It is a serious film but it is also very commercial," says Ms. Hui, a graduate of the London International Film School. "Sometimes it is better to make serious issues more acceptable to audiences, by making it a comedy and having big stars so that people will come watch the movie."[2]



The film was screened at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and Cinema Q Film Festival 2011.[3]
