This is a remake to the original "love Without End" which starred the late Linda Lin Dei (also known as Linda Dan Dei). The very pretty Jenny Hu plays Qingqing, who travels to Hong Kong to meet her uncle, who is the bundler in a nightclub. Soon, she is singing and catches the attention of patron Mr. Tang. She becomes a featured singer at the nightclub and Qingqing and Mr. Tang fall in love. This part of the film is nice. Of course, there are many flies in the ointment. To help Tang's business, she borrows money from the unscrupulous Mr. Wang, on the pretense that she go on a world tour with him. She and Tang have a big row and leaves her place in dramatic fashion. Later on, we find Qingqing has leukemia. As you can see from all of these plot twists, this film is rife with melodrama. I did not see the original, and wonder if this was made to reduce the tragedy of Linda Dei's young suicide. I did want to see Qingqing and Tang together, they seem to make each other better. In HK movies of the period, you saw a lot of adversity in love stories, so this is kind of a roller-coaster ride. I wanted to fast forward to the end to see what would happen, but I'm glad I didn't, because the film has a lot of charm and pathos in it. I'm not sure if everyone will like these twists and turns, but the acting, especially the aforementioned very attractive Jenny Hu, is top notch. Watch it, but if you become emotional watching films, bring your hankie.
