Love Soup - Netflix
Gil Raymond and Alice Chenery would appear to be perfect soul mates. Gil is a successful American comedy writer who has fled his home country in search of artistic integrity and a lasting relationship. Alice is an account manager for a perfume company in a London department store, struggling to maintain a flat in Brighton she cannot afford. Week by week, Love Soup explores Gil and Alice's separate lives: lives which, unhappily, never intersect, but which parallel each other in many subtle ways. The series observes their hopes and fears as they try to remain sane in a world from which they feel increasingly excluded. Tellingly, and poignantly, each week witnesses their continuing doomed attempts to find the definitive partner who will bring them the happiness they deserve.
Runtime: 60 minutes
Love Soup - Spicy Love Soup - Netflix
Spicy Love Soup (Chinese: 爱情麻辣烫; pinyin: Aìqíng Má Là Tāng) is a 1997 Chinese film directed by Zhang Yang and written by Zhang, Liu Fendou, Cai Shangjun, and Diao Yi'nan based on a story by Zhang and Peter Loehr. Spicy Love Soup was produced by Loehr's Imar Film Company, Xi'an Film Studio, and Taiwanese financing. The film is Zhang's directorial debut and would prove to be a launching pad for those both in front and behind the cameras. Screenwriters Cai Shangjun (The Red Awn) and Diao Yi'nan (Uniform, Night Train) have since gone on to direct their own films, while Liu Fendou has expanded into both directing (Green Hat) and film production (Zhang Yibai's Spring Subway). The cast is also notable for the debuts of two of China's most popular actresses, Gao Yuanyuan and Xu Jinglei. The film is an anthology of sorts, and tells its story of love and life in modern Beijing through a series of five vignettes. Spicy Love Soup was, in addition, the first film in mainland China to see a simultaneous release of a soundtrack, consisting largely of contemporary pop songs.
