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!!
A romantic film worth-watching! My friends and i enjoyed it a lot! =)
Thank you Clover Films for the preview ticket!
