Storyline

A love story that should not have happened. But the Great Cultural Revolution fathered it. As memorable as Romeo and Juliet, their love tied with the same intrusion from their families ¨C the hatred. Until one day, they watched Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It inspires them. It gives their juiceless love story the hope for fruit. It brings them the determination to bridge through time setting aside the hatred. The same gives them a wait of 12 years. 12 years of changing time, changing era. Friends come and go. Songs sang become old. How much longer for their love can they hold? How much longer for their love with beautiful memory and unforgettable days can they hold? Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Qu Ran: The story that begin with a bang ends with a whimper. For the first time in my life, I felt lonely, like I've been dumped. I decide to stop contacting Hou Jia, afraid that he'd confirm that ending... that he'd tell me things that I didn't want to know.

I like this movie!
14 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film for the first time last night, I would say I like it and especially the lead performance from Vicki Zhao (as Quran) is amazing.

The scenes comes with a good rhythm, which does not allow me to get bored. I noticed that this movie is based on a true story. Although the story itself is pretty simple and even kind of "old", I think its simplicity is part of what is so great about it.

After being disgusted by more and more "artistic" movies with which even the directors seemed not to know what they really meant to express, this movie is just like great pure vanilla. It was successful to capture my mood, and it does convey the beauty of an unbreakable bond of love that we are all searching for, and that we are always moved by.
