All About Love (得閒炒飯 De xian chao fan) is a 2010 Hong Kong film directed and produced by Ann Hui. Based on a true story, the plot concerns two lesbians who had been lovers in the past and meet again years later in a counseling session for expectant mothers.[1] Hui said in an interview that initially "There were no investors" for the film because the subject of same-sex relationships was banned in China, and the Hong Kong film industry relied on the Chinese market.[1]

Ms. Hui, a graduate of the London Film School,[2] described the film as "serious...but it is also very commercial," adding that "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."[3]
