A venture of western type romance
31 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

well, actually, Hollywood type love affair typically in the form of He loves her, she thought that she loves him, but then not so sure because there is another one who is far more attractive to her, etc.

This movie is Chinese version of what is described in the above paragraph, but this movie did not perform as good as expected in the box office because Chinese audience still firmly believes the traditional cultural belief of spousal fidelity, and no matter how attractive the other person is, the spouse is still the most important one, as it should always be, therefore the relationship with the other attractive person should strictly be friends, no romance or uncertainty should exist. Although China had accepted western ideas of economic, or even politics to certain degrees, some traditional cultural aspects are still deeply rooted in Chinese society and the poor box office performance of this movie is an example.
