Hoa Tran is still my woman.
1 April 2008 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

I'm just not into opera. And that, right there, ruins the entire thing for me. It wasn't that the singing wasn't good (which it was), but it was the entire time.

The story is sort of stupid. American man marries young Japanese girl, goes off to America and leaves her high an dry. She waits for him, but his new-wife brings the Japanese woman to a traumatic end. And, that is the synopsis.

True, it is supposed to be dramatic. But most men wouldn't just leave like that. Yes, I do know one instance. But this was supposed to be about love.

The American man comes off as a bigamist, and rightfully so. But the story would have just been better if it weren't sung the entire time. Heck, High School musical didn't sing the entire time.

Overall, despite some minor pluses, I can't really go along with it. This movie is only for opera fans. Avoid it if you are not. "D-"
