This is a typical HK film, directed by a young director. It depicts a person under the depression of the society ,then he met with a woman who also experienced a series of difficulties in her life. She suffered with a cancer and lost her husband , and she felt there was no hope for tomorrow .So she moved to the countryside with her grandfather, a cute old man often saying 'no cola, no hope', and gave her care and happiness to soothe her misery .
He met his Juliet in a restaurant ,justlooking at her eyes and said nothing. But it was magic and made things different. Owing to an unexpected occurrence , they adopted a lovely baby and had to foster it under one roof for some time . These days were the happiest time during their lives , they accompanied the baby to row the boat and walked along the trails . The sun was bright,everything was going well. They both also couldn't believe they had lived together .They sat outside the house to tell the other those old stories ,silently and in sorrow. But now they had the person to share with these stories. They were both abandoned by this society, and now they found that they had reached the bank. The grandfather left them because of a car accidence ,when he retreated the shoes he bought for her granddaughter she thought they were a little bigger.
The old man made them begin to love this world and find the lighthouse in the life.It was a shelter for them . Life was not just like tales, they separated with death. Many details in this film, and I was moved by them. Sometimes I would push back my tears . Some people think this ending is a flaw of the film, while I accept it . I realize that this is just life. Wuthering wind through the moor and if you could find your lover and put him or her in your heart ,it is enough.
