review by
Mike Haberfelner

Cameron (Chris Dinh) is a financially challenged courier who can only work night shifts because of an obscure skin condition that makes him allergic to daylight and who wants to one day become chef of his own food truck.

Jasmine (Julie Zhan) is the slightly spoilt daughter of a wealthy businessman, Martin (Kelvin Han Yee), who has only come to town for a stopover to see her dad before moving to Japan.

On first sight, Cameron and Jasmine have little in common, but when Martin can't make it to pick Jasmine up from the airport, he asks Cameron, his favourite courier to help out, which Cameron gladly agrees to ... and after a bumpy start, Cameron and Jasmine become friends actually, so much so that she, after Martin postpones meeting her time and again, calls Cameron to hang out with her, and especially when she hears about his skin condition, she starts to feel for him. Thing is, while Martin makes a mess out of showing Jasmine that he cares for her, he actually does care for her a lot, and he's not too happy about her hanging out with a lowly courier ...

 

Now one can't but notice the similarities between this movie and Before Sunrise, what with both movies showing love very slowly blooming over a very limited span of time (though it's two nights in the case of Comfort), the night theme as such, and the ever changing locations picked up all over town (LA here, Vienna, Austria in Before Sunrise though) - but that said, Comfort is by no means derivative, for one it's clearer structured, narratively, plus it does afford itself more featured characters whose subplots are woven into the main story quite beautifully. And taken on its own merits, Comfort is a pretty charming movie, it develops its story in a very relaxed but palpable way, relies on a very subtle and light-footed directorial effort and is carried by a likeable pair of leads. In fact, a nice dating movie even for those who don't like dating movies.
