Storyline

Phillip, a dance instructor who holds a class devoted to the latest dance craze, Para Para.

Soon, Yee begins using Phillip's dance studio as a sanctuary from her responsibilities, and an attraction begins to form between the two. However, Yee is called back to Japan to be married before long, and Phillip must use more than his dance skills and charisma to prevent her from taking her vows. Written by darylc@tpg.com.au

Entertaining movie fare
15 February 2002 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Para Para Sakura was a rather surprising movie for me. Entertaining and light, it mixes a good blend of drama and comedy. The dancing scenes are quite good and as always, the beautiful Cecilia Cheung shines. Aaron Kwok delivers a good performance as well and is probably one of his most emotionally diverse roles he has ever done. Very good though the ending seemed a little off to me, definitely worth a watch.
