A very tender love story in a difficult time
7 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this is one of the better movies I have seen in a long time. The emotions expressed between these 2 main actresses are subtle yet very real and convincing. Thumbs up to them. The story happened in China during evolution. It was a very difficult era. The things they do for each other and the scarifies they made for each other just take my breath away... True love is true love. It doesn't matter where it happened, how it happened and happened to whom. It is beautiful. The story keeps going back between the past and the present. It sort of contrasts how people show their loves at different decades. In the present, ppl say love all the time. In the past, ppl show love by actions. In the movie, the main actresses never say I love you to each other yet their smiles for each other and gentle touches to each other say it all. Their love scene is only portrayed by gentle kisses and touches and leaves the rest to the audience's imaginations. The love scene is very brief yet very powerful. At the beginning, one of the main actresses, Charlie, says that "we can't fall for each other because we are all women". Yet at the end, she realized that a committed, mature love is not for men and women only but for everyone with genuine feelings. She eventually falls for her partner. Because of their strong committed feelings for each other, when they finally meet after 30-40 years apart, the movie brings them back to their young selves again, full of joy and hand in hand walking away together as the ending. I wish there are more movies full of substances such as this one. Strongly recommend it.
