Peter Chan Ho-sun finally returns with Perhaps Love, the closing film for the Venice Film Festival 2005 and a nominee for Oscar Best Foreign Language Film. The film features a star-studded cast, including top Mainland actress Zhou Xun, Hong Kong super singer Jacky Cheung, Takeshi Kaneshiro who has been on the rise in Japan, and also Korean actor Ji Jin Hee who is best-known for his role in Dae Jang Geum. Peter Pau, after his Oscar winning cinematography for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, serves as the cinematographer for Perhaps Love, another potential Oscar winning film. The crew also includes top musician Peter Kam for film scores and famous art director Yee Chung-man for the production design.

In this splendid movie musical, Takeshi Kaneshiro stars as Lin Jiantung, a film-student-turned-actor who first encountered Sun Na, played by Zhou Xun, 10 years ago at film school. Sun Na now becomes famous director Nie Wen's (Jacky Cheung) girlfriend, apparently in exchange for a better career. She keeps forgetting her past, while Lin Jiantung indulges himself in remembering his romance with her ten years ago. Now all three of them has to work together in a musical, the plot of which is amazingly similar to their own experiences!

Some say Peter Chan offers a Chinese version of the famous musical movie Chicago. Whether this claim holds true or not, in Perhaps Love Peter Chan has explored an art form which very few Hong Kong or even Chinese film directors dare try. Yet, beneath all the enchanting singing and spectacular dancing scenes indeed lies the theme of romance, which seems a recurring motive in all Peter Chan films from Comrades, Almost a Love Story to Perhaps Love.
