Perfect Blue, The (Love Bites 1997, Philip Glenister, Inday Ba)



In The Perfect Blue, one of three single romantic dramas broadcast under the collective Love Bites banner, Tom and Sunny are about to get married – to other people – when they unexpectedly meet again. They used to be in love with each other – but that was years ago, and after all, they had nothing in common.

Sunny (Inday Ba) wanted to live life, dance in the rain and eat lemon jelly for breakfast, while Tom (Philip Glenister) hated taking risks and liked nothing better than sitting at home watching old movies on television. They soon realize that they’re still in love with each other. With their respective weddings fast approaching, Sunny and Tom are forced to decide if their reawakened passions are enough to discard the safe and sensible futures they had planned for themselves.
