房東告知俊傑,曉敏因失戀而變得一厥不振,並極度厭惡男性,為了與曉敏在同一屋簷下可以和平共處,俊傑只好裝作同性戀者,以消除曉敏的戒心。豈料,曉敏行為怪異,俊傑忍無可忍,堅決擺脫曉敏,此時,卻在一次偶然的機會,俊傑窺探了曉敏內心的一隅。原來,曉敏於婚前被自己認定是靈魂伴侶的徐暉 (徐正曦飾)拋棄,過去為徐暉幾乎犧牲一切的曉敏,甚至放棄了成為畫家的理想。在愛情和事業皆失意下,對生活失去了動力,對愛情失去了希望。俊傑在曉敏身上看到自己的影子,決定留下來扶持這位情路上的同路人。

俊傑開始重整曉敏頹廢的生活,讓她放下過去的包袱,並重燃對藝術的熱情。得到俊傑的鼓勵,曉敏也逐漸走出失戀的陰霾,生活慢慢重回正軌,兩人的關係亦不知不覺間發生變化,成為無所不談的「姊妹」知己。雖然二人漸行漸近…

正當曉敏尋回人生的方向,重新開始在蒙馬特廣場擺畫攤時,卻重遇當日捨她而去的徐暉。與未婚妻同行的徐暉,面上掛著的是她從未見過的幸福笑容。曉敏終於明白,愛並不等於擁有,在俊傑的開導下她真正放下了,讓徐暉留在昔日的回憶中,慢慢被淡忘。

此時,俊傑的前女友趙雨晴(劉梓妍 飾)竟來到巴黎,希望俊傑跟她回香港再續前緣 一個又一個無從解釋的誤會,把二人愈拉愈遠…

他喜爱雕塑,她热爱作画。。

曾经一起追求的理想,到最后却各自完成。。


五年的时间,五年的心恤。破碎的爱情真的很残忍!


"有缘无份,何必勉强, 曾经拥抱,不枉此爱。"


还好,

"不管多么深刻的伤痛,只需七年都会痊愈,因为七年的时间,可以把我们全身的细胞都更换一遍。一个旧细胞都没有,所有不开心,都会忘的干干净净。"


"人生没有永远的伤痛,再深的痛,时间会让它痊愈。"



"痛的不是分手,而是忘不了的过去。"


"短短一生中,我们的痛苦,来源于爱,我们的幸福,也来源于爱。"


"人生,最重要的是学会享受痛苦,在自己最痛苦的时候,给自己放放假,歇完再说。"



"没有结局的感情,总要结束。不能拥有的人,总会忘记。"







It may seems like a typical Mandarin Romance Film, but this movie is so good it got me tearing up from the middle till the end! Picking Paris is probably the most suitable place to be for it is the city of love! Apart from featuring many beautiful attractions in Paris (such as Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Ile de la Cite, and many others..), there are also some french culture being displayed in the movie. Expect the actors and actresses to speak in french and watch them interact with the locals! A movie ticket that brings you tour around Paris, Why not?!

We all know TIME is the greatest gift given. Having gone through painful break-ups in the past... I can totally relate my emotions with Xiao Man (Kuo Tsai-Chieh) but i believe even those fortunate ones can easily be moved by the story in this movie! It feels like everything becomes colourless and meaningless when love is gone and heart broken.. Everyday after feels exactly like a living dead.. Luckily, sadness and sorrow don't last and time heals! The appearance of Kit (Louis Koo) has then greatly help regained her soul back, helping her also helped himself in return! #soulmate? Maybe!

Plus point: Louis Koo played such a nice, good-looking, gentleman in the movie! =') And his motivational quotes are really pleasing and meaningful!!
