Outstanding Romantic Movie
20 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can tell that this is an old movie because Chow Yun-Fat is seriously young. Lin Chin-sha amazingly don't look all that different in the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Young or not, Chow Yun-Fat already has 10 years of acting experience behind him, and is about to break big with his starring role in "Better Tomorrow"

The two actors has outstanding on screen presence in this movie. The word best of the best comes to mind when seeing these two actors together. It's no wonder that they became international stars. They have such great chemistry together as lovers too. In this movie, most of the time there're only two actors, but don't feel lacking in any ways. They are beautiful, vibrant, and convincing.

I'm just envious about Chow Yun-Fat to be able to snog Brigitte Lin so much in this movie. But he's very deserving to have this role.

Certainly the best romantic movie of all times, and highly recommended for viewing.
