A conjugal love that is truly a love affair to remember.....
17 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Barely 18 years old, Fanny Ebner, the young and very beautiful daughter of an Austrian police officer, encountered a visiting debonair police cadet, Ma Yun-long from China. Their initial casual friendship blossomed into a life-long love affair!

She had to overcome her family objections and even against her best friend's advice. Fanny single-mindedly embark on a long precarious journey to China to be with her beloved Yun-long. Fanny and Yun-long were married in a church during an air raid on the city!

But they survived the air raid. Their love for each other survived the poverty, the hardship, the daily struggles of family life with their children and the political and cultural upheavals in China.

Their love affair survived against all odds......

This real life love affair of Du Chengrong and Gertrude Wagner, was an intense, engrossing and passionate conjugal love relationship between a Chinese man and a Caucasian woman that spanned more than half a century. This is an unassuming love story that transcended the cross-cultural barrier and triumphed over personal hardships and struggles. It was a love affair that survived the vicissitudes of living together as husband and wife in China during the World War 2 and China's political and cultural upheavals.

Her beloved husband, Chengrong passed away in 1990. At 86 years old, Gertrude had promised to attend the Shanghai premiere of this movie.....but barely two before the premiere, Gertrude passed away......leaving behind their legacy of a conjugal love that survives and triumphs against all odds.
