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

Simple, But Sweet Love Story
29 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In essence, "A Time to Love" (its English Title) is a typical love story with many theme elements that have been seen before, nothing ground breaking. Having said that, it's nicely written and it doesn't get sappy or too clichéd as in the case in many love stories of late. It is also interesting to note how well Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is integrated. Instead of simply copying that play's plot, it was a vital player in the lead characters lives. Acting talent is very good, including lead actress, Vicki Zhao, who showed a range of emotions well. The plot flowed well, it doesn't get dragging. All in all, if you like a nice little love story that is well written, and don't mind that it's not revolutionary, "A Time to Love" is worth a look.
