Great drama that keeps your attention to the end.
31 August 2001 | by (indonesia/holland) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie while I was in Taiwan, Keelung, and I regret the fact that I have never seen it in Dutch cinema, not even in the Film theaters (where they show movies from the theaters around the world, beside the hollywood blockbusters).

This movie is touching and tells more about the struggle of the two women the man is in love with than the man himself. It is one of the classic books of Taiwan and it is a must for everyone who likes Asian cinema or is hooked on drama. Made in 1994 it looks like one of those classic movies from the 30-ies, and it kept my attention till the last moment.
