Nice Soundtrack!
18 April 2005 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This movie was filmed in Taiwan rather than Hong Kong. The story of this movie is about people changing their beliefs and values after rapid economic development in Taiwan during 1960's to 1980's. It is a moving story. Although the movie itself was quite popular and I like it very much, the soundtrack was the best. The soundtrack of this movie was one of the most successful pop song albums ever in Taiwan. The songs were well written and are very suitable for the plot of the movie. Their style was very advanced then. Moreover, its good quality also stimulated the improvements of Taiwan's pop music industry. Julie Su, the singer of these songs, also became one of the most popular singers in 80's Taiwan.
