Chinese A-List actor Deng Chao’s directorial debut The Break-Up Guru hits China’s cinema this month with the opening scenes of the movie shot on location in the tranquil and elegant honeymoon beach destination in Mauritius.
The opening scenes of the movie shot on the beach of LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius. Set on the sunset side of Mauritius, the resort of LUX* Le Morne, Mauritius, poised at the very edge of the Indian Ocean in the shadow of the majestic Le Morne Peak, is the setting for the beginning of the movie that is set to be one of the biggest hits of the summer in China. Shot throughout the resort that is famed for being a wedding and honeymoon destination due to its quiet, calm and secluded setting in Mauritius, The Break-Up Guru’s opening 10 minutes are all on the lush island of Mauritius.
Produced by Enlight Pictures from China, The Break-Up Guru is a return to romantic comedies following the success of the production company’s summer 2012 hit Lost in Thailand.
The movie centers on Mei Yuangui, played by Deng Chao himself, as a professional “Breakup Guru”. He has invented a painless breakup method that involves no complications for couples in distress and is 100 percent reliable. Having helped over 2,000 couples successfully breakup or divorce, Mei Yuangui has become the God of breakups and customers continuously flock to him for his expertise. But when he receives a special request from a woman named Ye Xiaochun (played by rising star Yang Mi) it might possibly be his toughest assignment yet.
