    The film has an exhilarating tossed-off quality that characterized many of the most entertaining works of the French New Wave.

    Love in the Buff may not be one for the ages, but it is one for right now, and shows up countless lifeless Hollywood romantic comedies. Pang's nimble, incisive writing and direction and his winning leads give proof to the rom-com ideal that a film can be funny, romantic and connected to modern life.

    Despite the title, there is no nudity in the Chinese rom-com Love in the Buff, although there is a lot of risqué language.
