10 June 1999 | Iamnetboy
The best romance film to watch with your ex-girlfriend
This movie is so sweet that I gave it a score of 8/10 already when I was at 1/3 of this film. When I watched it till the end, it won my heart totally and got a score of 10/10!

This film reminds me Leon Lai's previous film Tianmimi(1986) which won Best Picture of Hongkong Film Award. Both love story films also describe social and political happenings of their time which made them a classic.

I was deeply touched by this movie not just for love story part, but for the plot of hardship life of studying abroad in 70's, political demonstration, language barrier, and Hongkong's destiny. That's a slice of my life and many Chinese'.

This is a classic love story. Bravo.
