Storyline

Two drama companies happened to share one auditorium for rehearsal. Friction was inevitable. One of them played 'Peach Blossom', a comedy in medieval costume. Another played 'Secret Love', a sad story with contemporary setting. Though unreconciled in all aspects, they find themselves telling the same story: the story of Chinese people forced to leave home.

a beautiful voyage
10 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when it first came out at the Vancouver International Film Festival and I have never forgotten it. The stories intertwine beautifully and the cinematography is incredible. I would love to see it again, and not sure where I could get a copy, but I often mention it to my students. If I remember well, there are three stories-- one is about two theatre groups in modern Taiwan who have been booked to rehearse in the same theatre, causing enormous fights between the two groups. The second is one of the plays which is called "Secret Love," about an old man who left a lovely girl in China to move to Taiwan. The third is the other play, based on the fable "Peachblossom land," in which the listener sees memory and loss of something so beautiful given up for mundane daily life. One of my favorite films, ever. I feel fortunate to have seen it. The play version is now a big hit in China, too.
