Storyline

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

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

Para Para - a good romance/musical movie.
9 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

The story goes like this: Aaron plays the role of a color-blind dance teacher who gradually sees and "feels" the color of the world after meeting and feeling in love with Cecilia, who, however, is engaged. The question is, would they be together in the end?

Cecilia, the "It" girl of HK films, is practically in every movie these days. At first I didn't like her but she grows on you. Not only is she beautiful, she seems like a very sweet girl. This movie has some great musical numbers and Aaron really gets to show off his dancing prowess. He can even do breakdancing, very well, I might add.

Another great thing about this movie is that it takes place in Shanghai and it really gets to show off the city. I went there 5 years ago and now it is completely different. Shanghai has really progressed and become a modern city.

Overall, Para Para Sakura is an enjoyable movie.
